What loads the ALSA Kernel modules?

I would like to prevent the loading of the ALSA OSS emulation kernel
modules (snd_seq_oss, snd_mixer_oss, snd_pcm_oss). But I really could
not figure out which component is loading them (they are not listed in
/etc/modules or /etc/init.d/alsa-utils).

Can anyone tell me what part of my system is responsible for loading
them, and how I can prevent that?
