You can check that in the Containment tree, under newly created or cloned validation suites Package, Relations group. In the image below, the Numbering Validation, Path Overlapping, and Pins Displaying validation suites with all Constraints are included in the newly created Specific constraints validation suite via the Package Import relation.
