Default Heterozygosity with short read simulators?

I was wondering if short read simulators like wgsim (from samtools) create heterozygosity from the input fasta file and if so, what they do to create it.

Thanks for any help

Yes, they store two copies of the reference, and when they mutate it (for SNPs/indels), some fraction mutates only one copy. See the source code for details.
