Mostly they do; check the release.something file for installation
instructions (e.g. libc-5.3.12 comes wth a textfile

But you can check manually as well, by using tar ztvf something.tar.gz
(or ztvvf [note the double 'v'] - I never figured out the difference)
which will show filenames within an archive.
