Beat Saber does not have built in mod support.
Instead, most mods within the mod installer rely on BSIPA (Beat Saber Illusion Plugin Architecture) to inject plugins into the game, as well as providing some useful tools for us modders.
Previously, we used IPA (Illusion Plugin Architecture). Some plugins still use this, and is still temporarily supported by BSIPA. It is recommended to use BSIPA for any future modding endeavors, however.
