Ah, when I said exploded build, I meant jdk/modules/java/base/.../*.classes. There is no native files there so I guess not supported.

> jlink in the exploded build works if you specify the proper module path. The module path should be `images/jmods` where JMOD files are found because java.base and jdk.jartools contains more than classes such as executables, shared libraries, etc.
