I'm pretty sure that the test data for the DRBG KAT (known answer test) came from the NIST algorithm test tool when the OpenSSL team tested all of the algorithm implementations.

The CAVP also posts sample test vectors if you are looking for that sort of thing: https://csrc.nist.gov/projects/cryptographic-algorithm-validation-program/random-number-generators#DRBG
