How does a function know the docstring of its code object?

You can do:
function = type(lambda:0)
foo2 = function(foo.__code__, globals())
assert foo2.__doc__ == "foodoc"
I am wondering how the function constructor knows that foo.__code__
has a docstring. I can see that
foo.__code__.co_consts == ('foodoc',)
But I can't find where in foo.__code__ is stored the information that
the first constant in foo.__code__ is actually a docstring.
