However, a search for "root certificate" on the site does. Try this
article: http://www.mono-project.com/FAQ:_Security

Also, you should understand that the root certificates are required on
the client side too, otherwise the client couldn't verify the
authenticity of the server's certificate. Or something to that tune.

I'd wager that MS.NET can use all the root certificates IE knows
about. If you take a look at the article I linked to, you'll probably
note the instructions on how to import the root certs from Mozilla
using mozroots.
