I have my H1B petition approved last year .

I had gone for my Stamping interview and received a query (221 g) .

Your Visa applications is denied as it is. The underlying petition itself is also recommended for revocation. USCIS will contact your employer and ask for more information. If they are convinced that the petition is appropriate, they will reconfirm the approval. If that happens you can apply for your Visa again using that same petition.

Irrespective of the above, you have been cap-counted once. For the next 6 years, if any employer wants to file H1 for you, they can file it cap-exempt.

This doesn't mean that OP's visa has been denied. It only means that they want to do some clarification before taking any decision. This decision may be approval or rejection. Please stop scaring people.

So do you think, that if USCIS reconfirms the petition the consulate will automatically contact OP and ask them to submit passport for Visa issuance? No, OP will have to apply again after petition is reconfirmed. So effectively it is a denial. Technically any 221g is a denial anyway, unless it gets cleared up and Visa is issued without another application.
