[U-Boot] U-Boot loading kernel from mmc question

I am trying to figure out how the bootm command in U-Boot works. It seems to
be a state machine that goes from start->findos->findother (fdt)->loados

However I am having trouble understanding how, since my linux image is
stored in some partition on the device (eMMC), does that get loaded into

Originally I thought this was what bootm_find_os and bootm_load_os does, but
they don't seem to access the block devices or filesystem or contain code
that reads in the linux and fdt images into memory. 

Am I missing a step here?
