On the initial INVITE you usually always have some kind of direction 
detection (e.g. is it an incoming call, or outgoing call, or internal 
call) as you have different routing.

Then you can set a record-route cookie with this information, e.g. 
";dir=inbound" which means an incoming call which means that you have 
rtpproxy_manage("ei") for the INVITE and rtpproxy_manage("ie") for the 
200 OK.

On in-dialog requests get the value of the RR-Cookie (e.g. 
check_route_param("dir=inbound) and check the direction of the 
(http://kamailio.org/docs/modules/3.3.x/modules_k/rr.html#id2527914) and 
use the same logic as for the initial INVITE (or vice versa).

Instead of a RR cookie you could also use the dialog module and dialog
