Good point. By the way, looking at /etc/modutils/serial, there is an example:
post-install serial /etc/init.d/setserial modload > /dev/null 2>/dev/null
Since post-install and install seems to have the same syntax, I will vote
for (Never done it through):
install modulename insmod -f modulename
One needs to run update-modules before this gets converted to

Now I know what happens during boot process for modules :-)
