[ensembl-dev] Is there an is_circular flag stored somewhere for sequences

I'm new to Ensembl and I've started to look at the db schema to see
if it stores the information I need for my project.
One thing I need to know is whether the sequences described in
the 'seq_region' table are circular or not.
For example, given its name (MT) I know that sequence with
seq_region_id 100965601 (from homo_sapiens 59) is circular but
I'm wondering if this information is actually stored somewhere.
I've been looking at many connected tables but with no success.

Any hints would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
