There is one reference to GRUB 2 to help clarify that Fedora does not
use it. There's no suggestion anywhere that it or any other
alternative bootloader is detectable or supported.

Also there is this:

"If you have other operating systems already installed, Fedora
attempts to automatically detect and configure GRUB to boot them. You
may manually configure any additional operating systems if GRUB does
not detect them."

There is an attempt made but there's no effort to list which operating
system that can be successfully detected.  No specific operating
system is named as being known to be detectable.
