They depend on Laravel's IoC container, which is core.
What's your real question? :)
I'm using Illuminate (to modernize some legacy code) separate from the laravel/laravel bootstrap repo, and there are zero facades being used. Every facade has a concrete implementation behind it. So from that perspective, there's no dependency.
Facades aren't used internally in the framework code, but the application container is in Illuminate\Foundation, Illuminate\Support and in the service providers.
