"make-kpkg kernel_image" compiles and packages the kernel including
the modules.

"make-kpkg modules_image" compiles any ADDITIONAL module sources found
in /usr/src/modules, such as PCMCIA and ALSA. If you have not installed
any module source packages, there is no need to run modules_image.
These modules are placed in separate .deb files.
