Curious about mast unstepping procedure

My mast is deck stepped, and I'm wondering what's actually holding it in place. I can't see any bolts that might be holding it in place, and I'm wondering if it's sitting on a post of some sort and the shrouds and stays are what keeps it down. I don't see anything underneath in the cabin roof either.

I'm attaching a photo of the base -- the quarter is there for scale. The other side looks pretty much the same.

What usually holds a deck stepped mast in place?
