Here is a code sample for above questions :
as you guess CreateWellcomePage function has been calling in Feature Reciever class of MyMasters Feature.

  1. private void CreateWellcomePage(SPFeatureReceiverProperties properties)
  2.         {
  3.             SPSite site = (SPSite)properties.Feature.Parent;
  4.             SPWeb web = site.OpenWeb();
  5.             PublishingSite pSite = new PublishingSite(site); //Get Publishing Site Object
  6.             SPContentType ctype = pSite.ContentTypes[“Welcome Page”]; //Get builtin “Wellcome Page” content type
  7.             PageLayoutCollection pageLayouts = pSite.GetPageLayouts(ctype, true); //Get builtin pagelayouts for this content type
  8.             PageLayout pageLayout = pageLayouts[0]; //Select first one which is BlankWebPartPage pagelayout
  9.             PublishingWeb pWeb = PublishingWeb.GetPublishingWeb(web); //Get Publishing Web.
  10.             PublishingPageCollection pPages = pWeb.GetPublishingPages(); // Get Page Collection
  11.             //TempFile for changing default page
  12.             string tempFileName = “TempFileForChangeWellcomePage.aspx”;
  13.             PublishingPage tempPage = null;
  14.             try
  15.             {
  16.                 //Get if there is an existing wellcome.aspx
  17.                 PublishingPage pPageExist = pPages[pWeb.Url + “/Pages/Wellcome.aspx”];
  18.                 if (pPageExist != null)
  19.                 {
  20.                     //Check wellcome.aspx is default page
  21.                     if (pWeb.DefaultPage.UniqueId == pPageExist.ListItem.File.UniqueId)
  22.                     {
  23.                         //if it is a default page we have to create a template page because the default page is not deleted.
  24.                         //Create a temporary page
  25.                         tempPage = pPages.Add(tempFileName, pageLayout);
  26.                         tempPage.ListItem.File.CheckIn(“Chk”);
  27.                         tempPage.ListItem.File.Publish(“Pub”);
  28.                         //Set this temporary file as default page so we can able to delete existing wellcome.aspx
  29.                         pWeb.DefaultPage = tempPage.ListItem.File;
  30.                         pWeb.Update();
  31.                     }
  32.                     //Delete Existing Wellcome.aspx
  33.                     if (pPageExist.ListItem.File.CheckedOutByUser != null)
  34.                     {
  35.                         pPageExist.ListItem.File.UndoCheckOut();
  36.                     }
  37.                     pPageExist.CheckOut();
  38.                     pPageExist.ListItem.Delete();
  39.                     pWeb.Update();

  41.             }
