If the volume root is reached and no `package.json` is found,
Node.js defers to the default, a `package.json` with no `"type"`
field. "Extensionless" refers to file paths which do not contain
an extension as opposed to optionally dropping a file extension in a specifier.

`import` statements of `.js` and extensionless files are treated as ES modules
if the nearest parent `package.json` contains `"type": "module"`.
