For GPT-based partitioning, we have a dedicated GRUB boot partition:

(parted) p                                                                
Model: Unknown (unknown)
Disk /dev/vdiska: 85.9GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: gpt
Disk Flags: 

Number  Start   End     Size    File system     Name  Flags
 1      1049kB  1075MB  1074MB  ext3                  boot, esp
 2      1075MB  1076MB  1049kB                        bios_grub
 3      1076MB  3075MB  2000MB  linux-swap(v1)
 4      3075MB  85.9GB  82.8GB  ext4


For machines with Sun labels, GRUB is actually installed using block lists:

(parted) p                                                                
Model: Unknown (unknown)
Disk /dev/vdiskb: 1100GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/8192B
Partition Table: sun
Disk Flags: 

Number  Start   End     Size    File system     Flags
 1      0.00B   8192MB  8192MB  ext4            boot
 2      8192MB  1016GB  1008GB  ext4
 4      1016GB  1100GB  83.7GB  linux-swap(v1)
