Question about block confirmations

I have a question about this:

To be confident that there won’t be a chain re-org, you should wait for six blocks to be created (around two minutes after the first confirmation).

If I see a transaction that I am waiting for, after waiting 6 blocks what exactly do I check to ensure there was no re-org? Can I simply re-retrieve the additions/removals & spends from the full node and confirm they still show what I am expecting?

Yes exactly. If a coin exists on chain and it was created at least six blocks ago, then you can safely assume that it won’t be removed in a normal reorg. If you want to be extra safe (in the event that the chain is under attack), then you should wait 10 minutes.
