In that specific case it's not java.base that depends
on java.security.jgss, but the application itself.

So I would expect the application code to either require
java.security.jgss, or some higher level module for that
itself requires java.security.jgss, or jlink to be run with
command line options that explicitly add java.security.jgss
to the image.
