Express.JS question about Express Generator

In the Express generator I noticed that to load the file is uses port localhost:3000. However, there's nothing specifically stating to use port 3000 (e.g., app.listen(3000)). Is localhost 3000 a default port to use or is there some other code that I'm missing?
