Isn't that rather vague? All tests could be in that category, as well as all anova methods and probably all diagnostics. At least one special case of chisq.test probably has a better claim.

The entry in the Encyclopedia of Statistical Sciences supports the very general view: it even has the Shapiro test.

Try help.search("statistics") or help.search("data analysis") ....
