AddonLoader only delays loading of addons based on conditions the addons themselves specify. It doesn't do anything with addons that don't explicitly list conditions for it, so if it's doing anything with Skillet, it's only doing so because Skillet's author included support for AddonLoader.

AddonLoader never "unloads" addons, since it isn't possible to unload an addon without reloading the UI. Individual addons can include "disable" functionality to turn off their active features (such as combat log scanning) and hide their visible UI elements, but they're still loaded in memory, and AddonLoader doesn't even touch that.
