data, log, index- does it apply all or any?

what about system databases? does instant initialization enabled or apply to them also?

Only non-log (.ldf) files.  Log files must always be initialized before use.

The specific db doesn't change the way SQL works, it's the same for the whole instance.

Thus, non-log files will use IFI if it's enabled and log files will not, regardless of db.
