It has a fair amount in it. It will depend on the tank if you need to add extra iron

Yes CSM+B contains Fe.
Fertilizer Comparison

The addition of Fe is also good if the tank is ready for it, otherwise in a normal setting the Trace will contain enough, if you feel you need more Fe add more Trace at least until you can get more iron.

It does, but not as much as Tropica Plant Nutrition or Seachem Flourish.

Whether or not you need to dose supplemental Fe depends on any actual/perceived deficiencies in your plants. But it's not a given.

Bill, click on the link Craig posted, according to that chart it contains much more iron then both flourish and TMG/Tropica

Oops. My bad. What makes it worse is that I have that same chart printed out at home.
