Yes, I would expect the errors to still occur.  At least they did on my
system.  I accidently included an uneeded module in the last build and
I still see the same message:

    $ depmod -a
    depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.23/kernel/drivers/media/radio/miropcm20.o

So, I'm not sure what to make of your situation.  I'm must be wrong
about something.

There are ten or twenty basic truths, and life is the process of
discovering them over and over and over.
