KSFF has 3 runways (one in the water, two on land).

The sectional shows *L yet only 4L/22R has lights. Is there a trick on the sectional to tell which runway has lighting or do you have to look at the supplement?

There is no way to tell which runway is lighted from the sectional chart. You have to check the Chart Supplement. From the FAA Chart Users' Guide (27 January 2022) p. 16:

The lighted runway may not be the longest runway available, and lights may not be illuminated along the full length of the runway. The Chart Supplement has a detailed description of airport and air navigation lighting aids for each airport.
