The several silver chloride POP papers contents some free silver nitrate to get the printing out effect. There was (is?) silver chloride gelatine "emulsions"  developing out (DOP) paper also - usually without free silver nitrate. 
It was called as a "contact paper" because it has a low speed so it was not able for enlarging -- only for contact printing.
This type of paper was available by all main producers till about the 1970-s. (And more by a few producers).
In a time silver chloride collodion developing paper was also widely used.
There was a few product for dual using DOP/POP called as gaslight paper in the first decades of XX. century.
(And a lot of other versions of the developed silver chlorides also in the history.)
