     They are related:

adg-vm: {11} fstat -n | grep 'internet.*102'
root     rpc.lockd    243    3* internet dgram udp *:1020
root     rpc.lockd    243    4* internet stream tcp *:1021
root     rpc.statd    311    4* internet dgram udp *:1021
root     rpc.statd    311    5* internet stream tcp *:1022

fstat tells you about open files/sockets.  mountd is how clients
find out about file systems and get handles to them.  rpc.lockd
and rpc.statd are involved in file locking for NFS.  I'm not sure
why rpcbind has udp *:1023 open.  mountd is essential for an NFS
server.  rpc.lockd and rpc.statd aren't strictly essential but can
be helpful.
