It's in selector.js jQuery.filter (near line 338)

// special case, filter by exact name
if ( !not && m[2] == 'name' && type == '=' )
	r = jQuery.grep( document.getElementsByName(m[5]), function(elem){
		return jQuery.inArray( elem, r ) != -1;	

of course document.getElementsByName only returns elements in the document tree.
