Weight Initialization Strategy in Pretrained Models

Given say, pretrained VGG16 models, how can I know what init distributions of weights were used? Do I assume the relevant paper was followed exactly? For example, in VGG16 models you have (https://arxiv.org/pdf/1409.1556.pdf):

For random initialization (where applicable), we sampled the weights from a normal distribution with the zero mean and 10^−2 variance

Aside from assuming this, is there a way to check this was in fact the case for these pre-trained models?
