Are you using an initrd? (Using an initrd is the default for the stock
Debian kernels.)

Maybe the modules are included in your initrd and loaded so early in the
boot process that the modprobe.d settings are bypassed.

You can check your initrd like this:

zcat /boot/initrd.img-$(uname -r) | cpio --list | egrep 'fan|thermal|processor'

(I know that this works for yaird-generated initrds, and I think it
 should also work with the ones from mkinitrd.)
