How can I ensure that initialization code of a package is called without requesting users of the package to call it directly?

In other words, you are asking how to execute code without actually calling it. Right?

You need to make the code self-aware; so it always does the Right Thing!

Unfortunately for you there are no triggers on procedures.
Perhaps you should submit an enhancement request to Oracle that they add this feature to PL/SQL.

Alternatively, you could call the initialization code yourself at instance startup right after you pin the code in the SGA.

If the initialisation code of that package does anything else then preparing the package to run, then the design is flawed.
You should not have any code in package A's init-code that influences package B's behaviour, unless package B calls package A (which automagically runs A's init-code)

Initialization code is executed when each session references the package for the first time.
