In original, game data for every chest has a specific item inside or item placeholder named RANDOMXY. Based on xy value, the game would randomly grant an item from a side table (IIRC the table for random01 contained only the worst possible weapons, so by opening a chest with it, you'd get a pole or a knife or something, etc). Totally empty chests were rare.
In my original BG game, Candlekeep chests and barrels were mostly empty. Everything was where I remembered it was when I did that section last night. Same objects, same amount of coins. sakichop played for an hour, after Candlekeep there isn't a lot of chest or barrels to check until Friendly Arm/Naskel (if you go that way).

The only thing I wasn't able to check was the sapphire gem in the inn, despite having a fighter with 18/95 strength I couldn't force the lock.
