Remark 18.16.5. In general the functor $g_!$ cannot be extended to categories of modules in case $g$ is (part of) a morphism of ringed topoi. Namely, given any ring map $A \to B$ the functor $M \mapsto B \otimes _ A M$ has a right adjoint (restriction) but not in general a left adjoint (because its existence would imply that $A \to B$ is flat). We will see in Section 18.19 below that it is possible to define $j_!$ on sheaves of modules in the case of a localization of sites. We will discuss this in greater generality in Section 18.41 below.
