question on NFS and mountd interaction

I am new to this forum. I have a question on NFS and mountd interaction. Pls let me know where to post this question.

The question I have is :
when a client requests for the root file handle of the mount point from mountd. Does mountd generate the file handle or does NFS server generates and gives it to mountd ? If mountd generates the file handle, how does NFS server learn about this root file handle ?

This sounds a lot like a homework question that I had not too long ago. In the spirit of education, I'll let you educate yourself but guide you to this link:

I went throught this link and I dont see any documentation on file handles.
I did do a lot of searching too. Hence I am posting it here hoping to get some help.
