When using grub-mkconfig menu is built using scripts in /etc/grub.d.
They are run sequentially and their output put into grub.cfg. You can
modify or remove any of them, or do not use grub-mkconfig at all and
maintain grub.cfg manually. There are several attempts to create
different tools to maintain grub.cfg.
