I have seen 2 sources (example) quote a Gemara on Megillah 12a saying that Mordechai was the Mashgiach or served at Achashverosh's mishteh (party). This was very shocking to me. I have tried searching for this Gemara for a while but still have not found it. Can anyone confirm if this is true and it's in the Gemara, and if it's there, what is the exact quote? Thank you

the maharsha and the megilla setarim say that kirtzon ish vaish”....mordechai

means that achashveroah made him the mashgiach mainly for the yayinn nessech issue

Rashi on Megillah 12a says that Mordechai was one of the Butlers of Achashverosh. This is the quote כרצון מרדכי והמן - הם היו שרי המשקים במשתה
