Here's a snippet of ObjectPatternNode::appendEntry.

void appendEntry(const JSTokenLocation&, ExpressionNode* propertyExpression, DestructuringPatternNode* pattern, ExpressionNode* defaultValue, BindingType bindingType)
m_targetPatterns.append(Entry{ Identifier(), propertyExpression, false, pattern, defaultValue, bindingType });

Here's the definition of Entry.

struct Entry {
const Identifier& propertyName;
ExpressionNode* propertyExpression;
bool wasString;
DestructuringPatternNode* pattern;
ExpressionNode* defaultValue;
BindingType bindingType;

The Identifier object created by "Identifier()" is in the stack. So it will get freed in the end of the appendEntry method.


var {[a]: b, ...[]} = {};
