Try using UnitIsUnit("target", "nameplate1")

And check if you are targeting the nameplate with the unitID "nameplate1" and the unit currently using "NamePlate1"...

Getting a unitID from blizzards nameplates:
Lua Code:
  1. local unitID = nameplate.namePlateUnitToken

It works exactly the same if you target lets say raid24 ... raid 24 is a unitID, and target is also a unitID referring to the same unit if targeted...

So "nameplate#" can be the same unit as raid# / player / target / focus ....
