My first thought was that the function might look up the pairs in the
current buffer's syntax table, similar to the commands for
sexp-movement, but in fact it has it's own alist:

,----[ C-h f insert-pair RET ]
| If arguments open and close are nil, the character pair is found
| from the variable `insert-pair-alist' according to the last input
| character with or without modifiers.  If no character pair is
| found in the variable `insert-pair-alist', then the last input
| character is inserted arg times.

E.g., (add-to-list 'insert-pair-alist '(?% ?%))
