If it is what I think you are talking about, where the camera orients the image vertical/horizontal to match the way the camera was held.

There is a gravity operated mechanical switch in the camera, similar to a mercury switch, that tells the cameras operating system which way it is oriented. The OS then flips the image before displaying it.
It is not actually done by the image sensor.
