In the sense that also tail_build is module, yes.
But in tail_build it can be missing from any module listed in

So far I've seen these runtime dependency problems only in sal and i18npool.
I don't remember any from taill_build.
I just think they are not necessary and we need to build things before
testing anyway.

The difference is:
if you remove not tested library from module and run make check there
now: nothing happens, only tests are executed
after: it will get build first and then the tests are executed
