What makes you think it does? AFAIK, there's no way VFAT can be used on a DVD
any more than can EXT4 or SWAP.

Yes, there is. I burn my DVDs with XFS, not iso9660. I have also used
reiserfs, and LUKS encryption.

These are bootable so that their malware can autorun?

I doubt it, but I have not tried.

The "Eltorito" standard emulates a floppy, so that the bios thinks there is a floppy and boots it. If it sees a hard disk instead it might boot on some bios. But I have not tried.
