How command "manpath" works?

I downloaded j2sdk from SUN and extracted it to /usr/local
and I found the /usr/local/j2sdk/man is in the list of command "manpath"

But I haven't set manpath manully and it's not listed in /etc/manpath.config

I'm wondering how manpath works, who can give me a hint or tell me in which package I can found the source code of "manpath" so I can check it myself?

Thank u very much!!
