I don't think it is related to mapnik. It is the javascript code served 
by the web-site that wraps up the map rendered by mapnik, osmarender or 
what so ever. It is part of the javascript code running in your browser 
which handles panning, zooming and selection of map-layer. If you are 
thinking of the map on openstreetmap.org, that would have be done by the 
maintainers of that site.
