The package information of modutils says:
Description: Linux module utilities
 These utilities are intended to make a Linux modular 2.2 or 2.4
 kernel manageable for all users, administrators and distribution
 maintainers. For 2.6 kernels, you should use the module-init-tools

So it does make sense to remove the modutils package now that d-i use 2.6

Seems like a good exercise to known the d-i build system better.
