It's in posixmodule.c, it calls abort(), which is a standard C function,
equivalent to killing the process with SIGABRT. The core dump behavior
is defined as the default signal behavior as SIGABRT in POSIX.

Windows has its own additional behavior for the abort function:

It's not a "segfault", but both behaviors (core dump on unix, and error
reporting popup on windows) are reminiscent of it, so that may be what
you're thinking of.
