Yes, you're right that ox-texinfo is used.

In doc/Makefile there's

  org.texi orgguide.texi:	org-manual.org org-guide.org
  	$(BATCH) 				      \
  	  --eval '(add-to-list `load-path "../lisp")' \
  	  --eval '(load "../mk/org-fixup.el")' 	      \
  	  --eval '(org-make-manuals)'

where org-make-manuals is defined in mk/org-fixup.el as

  (defun org-make-manuals ()
    "Generate the Texinfo files out of Org manuals."
    (require 'ox-texinfo)
    (dolist (manual '("../doc/org-manual.org" "../doc/org-guide.org"))
      (find-file manual)
