I'll have to look tonight when I get back to my camera but I thought the only place to select this is on the Genlock menu under OTHERS. For the EX3 and most likely the EX1 & 1R recording in HQ mode 24p is captured on the SxS card without pulldown. In SP mode however, it is captured as 60i and I don't think you can select to change that. Julio is correct that the selection of 24PsF or 60i for 24p is for the SDI output at least on the EX3.

Yes, I have a Canon HV20 that I use as a backup cam/b-cam and even though that does insert pulldown I still shoot 24PsF on my EX3. I would rather remove pulldown on a small amount of footage used from my b-cam rather than all of the footage. When I cut 24p footage I always remove pulldown before doing any editing. That way I don't have to worry about telling the NLE if the footage includes pulldown or not and what variant it is (3:2 or 2:3:3:2).

I always capture to a CD nanoFlash when using my EX3 which is nice because when that receives a 24PsF signal it captures as progressive. It also can remove pulldown as it captures which is a nice when shooting with cameras that only output 24p on a 60i timeline (like my HV20).
