I understand that employers will check employment and academic history including the dates.
But does anyone know if they will check the specific projects/tasks that you mention in your resume?
Is it a common industry practice to do so?

This depends wildly on country and industry. Some will check on such details by default, others won't.
If they suspect something on the resume is a lie, they may make the effort to verify it. Or they may just throw the resume in the trash and decide it's not worth the risk.
Either way, as long as you don't lie on your resume, whether or not they call someone and verify it should be a non-issue.
