You should dig into that as soon as possible, because both
'--aot=full' and 'mkbundle --static' require that you code
is licensed under the LGPL.

Mkbundle does not AOT-compile. It's bundling the runtime together
with your assemblies and their dependencies into a fat binary.

--aot=full is an experimental feature.
