Bootloader can be seen as a process which helps burn the code into a microcontroller. It can be an external or an internal process; sometimes you use a microcontroller based thing to burn a hex file into another controller, in this case the former becomes bootloader. While at times you directly burn code into the main controller itself, things like BootloadHID perform such tasks.
Hope this was helpful
