specify your serious issues,
until then your mail is just handwaving.

sure udev loads modules based on your hardware,
if you put an sound card into your server don't be surprised
to get an audio driver loaded..
that is easily tunable in /etc/modprobe.d where you can blacklist
the unwanted modules. then regenerate your initrd either by
`dpkg-reconfigure linux-image-XXX` or with `update-initramfs -u`
