Provisions related to slavery are found in the Penal Code. Kidnapping or abducting in order to subject person to slavery is prohibited at section 367, buying or selling any person as a slave section 370, and habitual dealing in slaves at section 371.
There appears to be no legislation in place in Brunei Darussalam which prohibits institutions and practices similar to slavery, although section 366 of the Penal Code prohibits abducting or kidnapping any women to compel her to marriage.
There appears to be no legislation in place in Brunei Darussalam which prohibits servitude. 
Provisions related to forced labour are found in the Penal Code which prohibits unlawfully compelling a person to labour against their will at section 374.
Provisions related to trafficking in persons are found in the Trafficking and Smuggling of Persons Order 2004 which prohibits trafficking in persons (section 4) and children (section 5) as well as the exploitation of trafficked persons (section 6).
