It happens in the driver specific part, with something like
/* Retrieve and print the ethernet address. */
for (i = 0; i < 6; i++)
printk(" %2.2x", dev->dev_addr[i] = inb(ioaddr + NE3200_SADDR_MBOX + i));
Look in drivers/net/3c59x.c for places where dev->dev_addr is written
to. Just about all Ethernet cards have a ROM of some sort where the MAC
address is stored. How the driver reads the ROM varies from card to card.
