I looked up in the .config file:

# U-Boot 2019.04-rc4 Configuration

$ grep CONFIG_ENV_OFFSET .config

$ grep CONFIG_ENV_SIZE .config

$ grep EMV_IN_MMC .config

$ grep ENV_FAT .config

I guess the uboot.env is a hidden file, but occassionally (esp. after
saveenv & reboot) I see this file as a normal file in /, not hidden.

I used "Lamobo_R1_defconfig" as basis and made just a few
irrelevant minor changes in make menuconfig.
It's actually a Banana Pi R1 board.
