Tags browsers generally do not work with the glibc sources due to heavy
use of the preprocessor, unfortunately.
stdio-common/vfprintf-internal.c has the implementation, and it contains
# define vfprintf __vfprintf_internal
So its vfprintf function is actually __vfprintf_internal.

Yes, calls eventually end up there.
