Subject Optional tasks

How does ant 'know' about the optional tasks? Are they defined as part of
the Ant core?

For example if I use the JUnit task Ant picks the taskdef directly from
options.jar (or whatever this releases jar file is called. But if I create
my own task I have to put a taskdef in my build.xml file, even if I put the
jar file containing the task into ant\lib. I was wondering where the
optional task magic comes from?
