Why does MyScriptModule's __init not need the `script_method` annotion?

See https://pytorch.org/docs/master/jit.html#torch.jit.ScriptModule

import torch
import torch.nn as nn
import torch.nn.functional as F
from torch.jit import ScriptModule, script_method, trace

class MyScriptModule(ScriptModule):
    def __init__(self):
        super(MyScriptModule, self).__init__()
        # trace produces a ScriptModule's conv1 and conv2
        self.conv1 = trace(nn.Conv2d(1, 20, 5), torch.rand(1, 1, 16, 16))
        self.conv2 = trace(nn.Conv2d(20, 20, 5), torch.rand(1, 20, 16, 16))

    @script_method
    def forward(self, input):
      input = F.relu(self.conv1(input))
      input = F.relu(self.conv2(input))
      return input

I find that it use script_method to decorate the forward, but the __init__ is not decorated by script_method.
