Supported entities and items such as torches or lanterns will emit light by using the light block added in 21w13a.
Some items are water sensitive and only turn off or on inside water. Additionally, all enchanted items will emit light level 6 while some enchants under certain conditions emit light level 9.
For a detailed overview of all supported items and entities, take a look at the wiki pages linked below.
