What is the module scope of Service Loader?

It is not clear to me from the description how Service Loader finds implementation classes. For example DriverManager.getDrivers() returns a list of all _installed_ drivers. It is not clear to me from which modules these drivers are loaded. 

* Is this system wide? 
* Just the modules the caller can read? 
* The modules the java.sql module can read?
