In a lot of cases this comes from DBus calls, I believe.  You can see
the myriad things happening on the session bus like this:

$ dbus-monitor --session

However, if you don't understand DBus this may not be incredibly
useful.  The applications called when you insert or attach common
types of media are found in your main menu under System > Preferences
