Does Jaunty 2.6.28-2-generic have VESA FB compiled into it?

I have two quick questions:

* I would like to answer a question that upstream is asking me about jaunty, see bottom of this report:
So basically I wonder if the 2.6.28-2-generic kernel in jaunty has VESA FB compiled into it or is VESA FB a module only?

* In general what's the best method to see if a certain part of the kernel
is compiled into the kernel itself or if it's built as a module?
I tried to look at /boot/config-2.6.28-2-generic and I found this:


Is that sufficient to conclude that VESA FB is built as a module in default Ubuntu installs?
