I learned from

that they don't have a "kernel",  but an "executive".  From the Preface 

"The words "system" or "VMS system" are used to describe the entire 
software package that is a part of a VAX-11 system, including privileged 
processes, utilities, and other support software as well as the 
executive itself.
The word "executive" refers to those parts of the VMS operating system  
that reside in system virtual address space.
The executive includes the contents of the file SYS.EXE, device drivers, 
and other code and data structures
loaded at initialization time, including RMS and the system message file. "
