When fetching all doctypes, is there a way to distinguish system doctypes(like User) from user created custom doctypes?

When creating a doctype, if custom field is checked, frappe doesn’t create doctype files(doctype.js, etc).

Since these files are needed for customisation, users have to uncheck custom field?

For custom doctype, these customizations can be done using Custom Script and Server Script doctypes.

Each doctype must belong to a module, and each module must belong to an app. For non-custom doctypes, you can identify which app a doctype belongs to by fetching module details.
