Hardware mac address - Routers and Switches in Data ventre

In a core switch, does every line card have a mac address? Or is it every interfaces that has a different mac address? I am confused. Or is it every SFP have a different mac address?

Can anyone enlighten me?

    I think this depends a lot on the model of gear you are working with. For instance with Cisco 6500s MAC allocation is different depending on the type of SUP you use. Your best bet is to track down some documentation for your exact hardware.
