[SOLVED] What is mounting /efi?

I’ve been using Arch for several years now and learnt so much from following the installation guide. I am curious to understand the following.

Yesterday I noticed that my EFI partition is mounted at both /boot and /efi. My fstab file mounts the EFI partition at /boot but not at /efi. My question is what mounts the EFI partition at /efi? I can unmount both mount points but if I try to list the contents of /efi my EFI partition is “magically” mounted again (confirmed by lsblk). What mechanism is doing this? It’s not a problem, just something that surprised me when trying to diagnose an issue on another computer

I use systemd-boot and pacman has always updated kernels flawlessly.

Re: [SOLVED] What is mounting /efi?

The wikis are not clear enough?

Re: [SOLVED] What is mounting /efi?

Previous experience has shown me that the answer is nearly always in the wiki. However I’ve spent quite a bit of time reading up on this before asking my question. I discovered that systemd automount can mount a partition (which was new knowledge for me) but I’ve found no evidence that is set up on my system.

I’d appreciate a hint about where in the wiki I can find an answer.

Thanks in advance for any time you might spend on this.
