how does EVE-NG compute system Mac of an Arista vEOS instance ?

Before posting something, READ the changelog, WATCH the videos, howto and provide following:
Your install is: Bare metal, ESXi, what CPU model, RAM, HD, what EVE version you have, output of the uname -a and any other info that might help us faster.

Friends
How does EVE-NG compute system Mac-address of an Arista vEOS-Lab switch ( or for that matter, I assume code is uniform for other vendor's switch too , IOL-L2, Standard Switch, etc) ?
Here is the output of a vEOS-Lab instance

MAC 5000.0006.0001

0006 is node ID
0001 is port
rest I dont know about such vlan svi's mate

looks like veos it generate it self

Vlan10 is down, line protocol is lowerlayerdown (notconnect)
Hardware is Vlan, address is 500a.0090.a115 (bia 500a.0090.a115)
