Well, there's a boot loader in that (AFAIK it's not GRUB, but it's
a while ago I last looked). As I understood An Liu, the idea was
to understand how all that pieces fit together, so asking for the
boot loader seems relevant.

Those come directly "after" the boot loader (so they are part of the
boot /and/ of the installation process, too).
