WebCore doesn't register for mouse events, the WebKit layer takes care
of passing mouse events down to WebCore when needed. For example,
when a button is pressed WebKit on Mac (<http://trac.webkit.org/browser/trunk/WebKit/mac/WebView/WebHTMLView.mm?rev=36685#L3132

dispatch of DOM events, etc.
Hope this helps,
