    sys/kern             link_elf_obj.c 
  Linker set support depends on the magic __start_<section> and
  __stop_<section> symbols generated by the static linker for elf
  sections. This is done only for the final link, and not for ld -r.
  Augment elf_obj in-kernel linker by recognizing such special symbols,
  and resolving them to the start and end of the section automatically.
  As result, linker sets on amd64 could be used in the same way as on
  other architectures, without explicit calls to linker_file_lookup_set().
