There should be only one catalog, for which databases may or may not be registered.  Are you asking which database contains the catlog_db referred in:

RMAN>CONNECT CATALOG <user_name>/<passwd>@<catlog_db>

From your last question on catalogs:
You don't really 'register' a database with a catalog from the database's perspective.

You tell the catalog what database it needs to worry about.  The database being backed up is sort of an unwilling participant.
