Default Manufacturer serial/construction numbers

The MSN (or c/n) for nearly every USAF, Navy or Marines aircraft seems to be known. Where exactly are these MSNs retrieved from? I don't imagine the manufacturers would ever list them for public viewing.

For example, 1448/C464 is an F/A-18C built by McDonnell Douglas with the BuNo 165407. The BuNo is visible on the aircraft but the MSN is not, so how was 1448/C464 matched to BuNo 165407?
