Can legendary weapons be found in normal loot chests?

I know that a lot of legendary weapons spawn from bosses, but can the weapons they drop be found in chests? Example, Hellfire, Maggie, CC, Skullmasher, and so on.

I've found the Legendary Dahl SMG in one of their red boxes, and IIRC it was in the prison cell in front of Roland when you have to save him.

I've gotten an orange grenade mod from a chest and the transformer shield from an item of the day so you can get orange items from vendors and chest just a lower chance its like 5 times more likely to happen if you find the corresponding boss that drops the item your looking for but that isent saying much

I got a Bee (the grenade mod, not the shield) from the chest under the bridge right outside Overlook.
