It could have a full length mortise and tenon or could be using short slots with dowels. Eitherway there need to be some leeway in the mortise or slots in the bread board to allow for movement in the field.

Edit: I think using dowels will be easier. Make the center dowel hole tight in the bread board end and the dowel holes out from the center will be elongated to allow for top movement. The only glue point is at the center dowel location for a length of a few inches. The key to a tight fit to the field is for the bread board to be slightly concave and being able to pull the gap close with long clamps when gluing.
