There are a few things that are common, but there are a lot of differences as well. There can be a hybrid approach as well, or standalone implementations too. That is why mentioned about things REST can be good for, and GraphQL not being a silver bullet. And totally agreed about the data tooling part, that is what it does best, and only using it as an authentication API would be a poor use of GraphQL.
