[syslinux] About syslinux and ID byte for kernels

"...To bzImage and recent zImage kernels, SYSLINUX 1.30 and higher will
identify using the ID byte 0x31.  PXELINUX identifies using the ID
byte 0x32, and ISOLINUX 0x33.  The ID range 0x34-0x3f is reserved for
future versions or derivatives of SYSLINUX...."

Is this info available after boot in /proc or similar, or is it just
something the kernel is told and keeps for itself?
