What add-ons come bundled with Confluence?

Which add-ons come bundled as part of a Confluence cloud license? For a Confluence server license?

Basically, the same - you get all the system addons, and none of the others.

Which are the system add-ons?

It doesn't matter - they're the ones that make Confluence work when you install it off-the-shelf. I'm not sure why you think you need to know this? Run a trial of Confluence, if it doesn't have something you need, then look for an addon to provide it.

Because I'm trying to create internal documentation about how to use the basic add-ons. I'm not sure why you think you need to know why I need to know this?

I was curious as to why you think it's useful to try to compare Cloud and Server versions in terms of plugins, as most answers to that question probably have a better approach. This one certainly does - 99.99% of users simply don't need to take a "this system plugin does that" approach to Confluence. Use Confluence off-the-shelf, as documented on Atlassian's site. It's utterly irrelevant what plugin provides what function.

They need a "this macro does this" approach though, and the bundled plugins provide macros.

That's fine, my point is that what plugins do what are totally irrelevant. Macro X does Y is perfectly sensible, and it's the way Atlassian have documented them at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Macros - that will always cover the macros a plain installation of Confluence will provide. It's generally good enough that most people documenting Confluence for internal use can point at it and say "here's the list of macros you *could* use" and then get stuck into documenting how the organisation could and should use them to create good pages and spaces - a worked example of a clever page is often a good start!
