Which transactions are available from "getrawtransaction" RPC call when "-txindex" is disabled?

I noticed that even with -txindex disabled getrawtransaction RPC call still returns transactions. I assume that without the full index it will still return transactions that node software needs for other reasons (wallet transactions, UTXOs, …). But what are those cases? Which types of transactions are available even without the full transaction index? And what happens if I request a transaction that is not available?

Accepted: Only the transactions controlled by the wallet

Without indexing the chain it can only return transactions that it has indexed itself, which are in its own wallet. Now that the wallet has been removed from the BitcoinSV client my guess is that all it will return is coinbase outputs, but that should be verified.
