Is there a list of which particular LaTeX .sty files are installed for a given MacPorts texlive bundle? For instance, which are in texlive-fonts-extra or texlive-science?

I know this list must exist somewhere. I've been googling around for the past 20 minutes with no success.

If so, which things are in which packages is determined by your distro's packagers and will vary from one Linux distro to another. The packaging does not correspond to divisions in upstream's TeX Live. – cfr Jun 25 '15 at 13:21

As mentioned by @cfr in a comment the packages are bundled by the distributer rather than the TeX Live base. In this case I needed to be looking for MacPorts specific bundles:
