Take bluetooth for example. When paroli starts it registers the service. 
  The service would contain a subset of configuration options which get 
picked up by the settings application. For example: active, scan, be 
visible etc.
The settings app would take those actions and create buttons/sliders etc.
The same goes for any application. For example if the settings app runs 
on the OM image it would show phone configs, such as "send own number", 
"ring tone" etc. On shr on the other hand, as they have their own phone 
stack, these options wouldn't be there.
So the settings shown in the settings app would be generated depending 
on the applications and services installed.

Did this help?
