I don't really know my way around the mediawiki codebase, but a quick
check seems to suggest it's in includes/CategoryPage.php:


In particular, check out the getHTML, getSubcategorySection /
getPagesSection, formatList and columnList / shortList functions.

Rendering of the actual links (inside the lists) seems to be done by
addSubcategory and addPage, which uses makeKnownLinkObj (inherited by
the Skin class from Linker).
