Lots and lots of services default to using NetBIOS over TCP/IP, even when in native mode. You can disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP through the Advanced configuration options of the protocol. You should also disable NetBIOS in all external or outbound interfaces. I was unable to find a definitive list of exactly which services use NetBIOS. You might be able to find something useful by searching Technet.
