101 = 100 ohms, like the color codes the third
digit is the number of trailing zeros.
Very common surface mount R value.

They may be something else, maybe precision resistors
or caps. Measure the R with a ohmmeter and compare
to the marked value to see if it makes sense.

Yep. You might find they are all the same, like
cheap decoupling caps often are. Have fun! :o)
