I found the list of implicit USE flags:

def _get_implicit_iuse(self):
Some flags are considered to
be implicit members of IUSE:
* Flags derived from ARCH
* Flags derived from USE_EXPAND_HIDDEN variables
* Masked flags, such as those from {,package}use.mask
* Forced flags, such as those from {,package}use.force
* build and bootstrap flags used by

For 'prefix' we rely on the fact that it will either be in use.mask
or use.force.
So why do we still add 'selinux' to IUSE?
