Are (spoofed)MAC’s stored in a wireless NIC’s memory?

        If you spoof a MAC address for a wireless adapter, via ifconfig or other means, the mac address is stored in a local file. But it doesn't seem practical that the card is accessing that file to check it's own MAC for every packet it receives. So it would make sense that the wireless card (chipset) has it's own memory, volatile or non, that the firmware would need  in order to identify if packets are addressed to it or not.
If it exists, could this memory be dumped via firmware update tool or similar means? Or would it require physical access (I/O pin) and complete RE?
