[tor-talk] How Tor Browser changing circuits for tabs?

How does Tor Browser change circuits for each tabs?

In Tor Browser, a circuit for tabs of Facebook is different from a circuit for tabs of Wikipedia for example. I checked these by:

I thought that I could never get this behavior without modifying Tor Browser source code. So I'm searching the code: unzip-ing tor-browser_en-US/Browser/browser/omni.ja and grep-ing "circuit". But I couldn't find what I wanted. It's reckless of me.

Any suggestion? If you know, parts of the code that changes circuits for tabs, or good documents, let me know them please.

My guess:
I know that it will change the circuits to send "signal NEWNYM" to Tor control port. May Tor Browser use the port with some commands like it when opening tabs?
