Thor Vigilance on Windows Servers  

Windows Server (regardless of version) does not have the WSC (Windows Security Center) service, where AV providers can register. That means, we cannot register ourselves as an AV, or can we detect if another AV is installed.   

That means, the AV (Defender in this case) is not register. In conclusion, we can't detect it.Windows Defender cannot be removed by Heimdal on Windows Server. They have to be treated manually.
