Does this only apply to executable content installed through standard installation procedures?

For example, if you have Google software (like Chrome) and its software updater regular downloads executables, runs them, then deletes them. Would these executables be captured by system_profiler?

What about PHP, Python, R, Bourne shell code, etc.?  Are these of interest?
