The -limitmods option is limiting the set of observable modules to 
com.greetings and its transitive dependences. Very useful for testing 
and also important when using the linker.

There isn't a jlink JEP yet but I would expect the issue as to whether 
the tool does service binding by default or not be listed in its open 
options. In the current prototype then it always does service binding so 
this is why the resulting image has the service provider modules and 
their dependences.
