As far as I can tell, the model ID is auto-generated based on module and model.

For example: the model my.object in the module my_module

When searching for it:


When referencing it in XML:

<field name="model_id" ref="my_module.model_my_object">

Notice that the . (dot) character is replaced by _ (underscore) in the model reference.
