Isn't that because what that line actually scans for is things of type 
usage: discover [--bus-summary] [OPTIONS] [BUS [...]]]
       discover --type-summary [OPTIONS] [TYPE [...]]
       discover --data-path=PATH [--data-version=VERSION] TYPE [...]

ie. discover wants some device _types_ as arguments. Hence you searched for 
the linux kernel drivers for some displays, which don't exist since only 
XFree86 driver data is in the discover-data udeb.

Try, for example:
discover --data-path=linux/module/name --data-version=2.4 network
