Yes, /etc/fstab contains /dev/md_d0p1 for / partition.

I have been doing some digging in the initramfs and the dracut script.

The initramfs does contain all the md related stuff like drivers, the
devices for md_d0 and the /etc/mdamd.conf.   To the best of my
knowledge these should be sufficient to load /dev/md_d0p1 (/).

I have not had a thorough look at the dracut script though.

I will post whatever relevant information if I find something that I
don't quite understand.
