As i said in last post do not think of system = tool, it is set of tools , guideline and processes , Configuration management system may exists even if the project not in action, because lot of configuration management activities are managed at product or organization level. But inside the project it is considered as part of or sub system of PMIS

Whenever such questions come, do check the glossary given in PMBOK its a great tool for such doubts

Configuration Management System. A subsystem of the overall project management system. It is a collection of formal documented procedures used to apply technical and administrative direction and surveillance to:
identify and document the functional and physical characteristics of a product, result, service, or component;
control any changes to such characteristics; record and report each change and its implementation status; and
support the audit of the products, results, or components to verify conformance to requirements. It includes the
documentation, tracking systems, and defined approval levels necessary for authorizing and controlling changes.

I also wrote blog on same topic, which you may like to refer to. ... ent-study/
