Are you sure? From /usr/share/doc/modutils/README.Debian.gz:

% * Automatic unloading of modules is no longer done by kerneld. Instead
%   we use a new little daemon called modclean.                                          

but, from /usr/share/doc/modutils/changelog.Debian.gz:

% modutils (2.3.11-6)...
% * Don't install modclean anymore. It worked, but the current
%   implementation ignores post and pre-remove commands in modules.conf.
%   Upstream plans to have a proper solution for 2.3.12 instead.                               

So, it seems we have no autoclean for kernel modules on Potato.
