There's a few places, in the debian-cd code.

If the disc set is generated with FORCE_FIRMWARE=1 (e.g. in CONF.sh),
then the relevant packages will be included via tools/sort_deps (and
listed in $dir/firmware-packages).

Later on, tools/make_disc_trees.pl will look in that file for the list
of packages. If the package *currently* being added to the disc
temporary tree is listed, then a symlink is created at the same time.
