Component inside FlexiPage. But where in metadata?

Hello. So I am aware you can add a VF component onto the flexipage layout using the Lightning App builder. However, if I extract the FlexiPage meta data using ANT migration tool, there is no trace of that component I added.    The component metadata itself is available separately, as <name>AuraDefinitionBundle</name>. But that's the component definition.

Am wondering how Salesforce keeps the information that X component is a part of Y flexi-page.   Can't see this anywhere.   Has to stored somewhere right?

Hi, If you add component  ( lightning component that you created or standard VF component ) to flexipage, in metadata retrieve you will be seeing that component and its properties in <componentInstances> under componentName, componentInstanceProperties ,sample shown below.  Your package.xml can just have flexipage name , sample shown below. Hope it helps!
