Let me rephrase a previous Q --

When some program tries to show a URL, it invokes
your "default browser". How does it know what your
default browser is and where is that set?

Is it a symlink somewhere in your home directory,
or a text file with the browser name in it? Or what?

In Desktop settings > Personalization > Applications

But how does an application that wants to call the default browser know
which one it is? The above is how does the user set it up. The question
is how does an application know.
