The modules aren't even built on architectures where Xen is not supported or enabled in the kernel .config, so there is no danger of them getting into any udebs where they don't belong. The modules are marked as optional for this reason, see for example the 486 kernel which doesn't have Xen enabled in it, and as expected there are no Xen modules in any 486 udeb despite them being present in the 386 specific udeb lists.
