The Debian kernels include just about every module (as do most
distro's), so that new installations can work on diverse hardware. When
you compiled your own kernel, you only selected modules for the hardware
you actually have, so the others didn't get built at all.

As long as you have all the modules you need, don't worry about it. If
you're missing something you require, then go back and check your kernel

  finger for GPG public key.
