We are a big enterprise using JIRA since many years already for thousands of projects. During this journey we added a lot of plugins. JIRA instance is bloated and we are trying to find a way to see the plugin usage statistics so that we could remove unused plugins.

And so-on. There's no way to do "usage" because it's too different. You'll need to go over each add-on, have a look at how it does things and what it adds or changes, and work out a way to establish how your users may be using it.
There are some tricks - for example, fo workflow functions, you can search the raw xml for the names of classes the add-on provides, and you can go over all your non-standard fields with <field x is empty> queries.
