[C#] auto implemented properties and private fields ?

Hi. I have question about the auto-implemented properties in C#. So, when I make an auto-implemented public property in my class but when i make an object (instance) of the class and I set something to the property and then get it how its working when there is no private field ? I think the compiler allocates memory somewhere in the memory and making the property to point to the address of the value ? Is that the answer or I am wrong ?

What I have tried:

Tried to search but with no results. Then I came here to ask my question
