When do Session Listeners start?

Do the session listeners specified in the DD within <listener-class> tags start when the app deploys, or do they start when the first session is created, or some other time? Or does this depend on the implementation of the specific Container?

If I wanted to find this out, I would put a System.out.println("I've started"); line in the constructor of a listener and then tail the server logs while starting up and hitting the application.
