You can find default implementation in WebCore, yes:

void EventHandler::defaultKeyboardEventHandler(KeyboardEvent* event)
   if (event->type() == eventNames().keydownEvent) {
        if (event->defaultHandled())
        if (event->keyIdentifier() == "U+0009")

possibly , either chromium or safari are doing not-default stuff...
