Looking for a Proxmox Specific MAC Address generator (as opposed to having PVE autogenerate it for me)

I'd like to Pre-generate the Mac Address for a tool I'm building. I'm currently using one for VMware (and VMware only allows specific MAC addresses) and wondering if Proxmox has something similar?

Is there a Proxmox SPECIFIC Mac address generator?

(i'm guessing there is a function in the codebase - does anybody know where that is?)
