How are account numbers established?

I've scoured the internet to find any docs on how "account\_number" gets attached to your address/pubkey. How are these initialized? A naive reading would suggest that it is related to the BIP32 derivation path from which your keys were created, but that cannot be inferred in any way from the public keys themselves, and must inherently have knowledge of the mnemonic. What am I misunderstanding about this?
