Welcome to Gentoo!

You can test this easily. issue the command ls /mnt/gentoo

If you get a laundry list of directorys and your tar balls you are not chrooted. If you get an error about the directory not existing your are good. If you are not in the chroot you can go back safely and issue the three commands again. You may have missed the export command. This is harmless as it only serves to remind you that you are in a chroot.
