Sure. But we know that many small factoids originated as throw-away tidbits (guild of chaos monks, for instance), and Troll Pak has an in depth collection of facts on where and how the different troll types and troll-like monsters originated.

THe only page my index knows is Uz Lore (AH-edition) p.27, but I seem to recall most of the info is among the exotic troll variant listing.
