As one who uses mod_tile (Originally via https://wiki.debian.org/OSM/
tileserver/jessie I think )  I wish to point out that mod_tile can and is 
actually used by tiles which are rendered locally (by renderd) from 
information which may be updated once the admin decide it's a good idea to 
update the data.

mod_tile is an excellent way to get an offline tile server that can be used as a 
drop-in replacement when you need to force offline solution. 

I honestly do not see a flow when a person would be using mod_tile and rendered 
but would be relying on online osm tile providers.

Personally use it with a browser and marble-qt.
