Default OT: Keyboard LEDs driven by what?

Hi,

short question:
Are the LEDs of a PC-keyboard driven by the keyboard
processor itsself or do they react on signals send
back from the system when recogizing a - for example
-- "Caps Lock event" ?

Thank you very much in advance for any help!

Best regards,
mcc
