[SOLVED] DE10-Nano custom image - Where is U-boot? How is this working?

I built an image that works on my DE10-Nano. U-Boot shows the version as 2020.04:

U-Boot SPL 2020.04 (Jul 07 2020 - 06:35:21 +0000)
Trying to boot from MMC1

U-Boot 2020.04 (Jul 07 2020 - 06:35:21 +0000)

FPGA:  Altera Cyclone V, SE/A6 or SX/C6 or ST/D6, version 0x0

DRAM:  1 GiB
MMC:   dwmmc0@ff704000: 0
Loading Environment from MMC... *** Warning - bad CRC, using default environment

No ethernet found.

Hit any key to stop autoboot:  0


But looking in the FAT partition, there is no u-boot.img. So how is this working?

Okay - after studying this page one more time, it seems that the u-boot is no longer present in the fat partition. Instead, it appears to be combined with the SPL in a binary format and copied as an executable into the binary partition of the sd card image.
