Is that an Intel 440ZX chipset ? Intel made many of the Micron boards and the DR737 was the IN440ZX OEM board, used in AST and some other computers AFAIK. BCM has the manual but does not mention that header but judging from the traces it goes to the ESS sound chip so is most likely a OEM specific Wavetable header. Side note: have a similar board but with ATI Rage video and Creative SB16 on board....
From what I can read it is: MBD00111-0222 which is this (the MBD # on the little white sticker near the video ram ):

Presto 8MB 2x Pentium II 440BX Micro ATX Motherboard with Integrated Components, MBD001111-02
Knowing that can lead to better info hopefully. Will do some digging when I get off work.
More specifically, MBD001111-0222JPY
There's two chips here:
The AGPset chip does say 443BX, and the Winbond chip does match with what you linked for I/O Chipset.
I took another look at the Maestro-2M on the board and tried to trace the pins to the Modem Header. What I could find are connections from pins 51 to 54, 59 to 62, 72, 73, 104 - 107. I think I was able to follow trace 29 to the bottom of the board and to the same connector... interestingly my chip has 144 pins while the manual for the Maestro-2 I found only has 100.
I can't for the life of me find a 2M manual. Either way, if what you're suggesting is true about the wavetable thing, that would be incredible. I kinda think it's just some fancy way for the modem to make its beep boop sounds directly to the same output as the rest of the sound though, but I'd love to be wrong.
Onboard ATI Rage and SB16 sounds really nice.
