[fpc-pascal] When is TComponent.Loaded called?

As the subject says. When is TComponent.Loaded called?  I'm trying to
use it in fpGUI to initialize a few things in a component, but Loaded
never seems to execute.

Reading the Kylix 3 help, it says Loaded is called by the streaming
system that loads the 'form files'.  Well fpGUI doesn't use 'form
files' (like *.dfm or *.lfm). Instead the GUI Designer creates the
components via code in a normal *.pas unit, which is called after the
Form's constructor has completed.

I gather it is safe to assume the FCL never calls a TComponent's
Loaded method anywhere?
