Yes, it is sja1105_mdiobus_base_t1_register which is inlined.

I figured that was the assumption, that the of_node_put would never
trigger a sysfs file / kobject deletion from there.

The answer seems simple enough, but stupid question, but why does
of_find_compatible_node call of_node_put on "from" in the first place?
