Strange issue with Global Variables - Forms 12c

I have recently taken up a project where forms written in 10g needs to be converted into 12c.   When looking at  these forms,  there is extensive use of these global variables.

One odd thing I see with these global variables is that they are not declared anywhere in these forms.  Usually, we declare and assign a value to a global variable in WHEN-NEW-FORM-INSTANCE trigger.

Whereas this trigger (WNFI), shows no reference whatsoever for these Global variables.

Now , I am at a loss here,  these Global variables are used every where in these forms, but they simply do not exist in WNFI where they should have been declared and assigned a value in the first place.

Where else these Global variables could be getting it's value or would have been declared? Any idea?

Thank you,
