I suppose i am refering to drilling & notching wall or ceiling studs ( members ). Where in the NEC is it ? or is it an OSHA item ?or maybe a General Construction item ?
Scoll down the page for floors

R502.8 Drilling and notching.

Structural floor members shall not be cut, bored or notched in excess of the limitations specified in this section. See Figure R502.8.

FIGURE R602.6(1) NOTCHING AND BORED HOLE LIMITATIONS FOR EXTERIOR WALLS AND BEARING WALLS FIGURE R602.6(2) NOTCHING AND BORED HOLE LIMITATIONS FOR INTERIOR NONBEARING WALLS

Note that these are for 'normal' lumber.

Only thing NEC mentions is protection of wiring methods to be installed in the holes or notches. How structural integrity is effected is a building or other code issue and not an NEC issue.
