the programm depmod calculates the dependencies of the modules. One of
the files it writes is /lib/modules/[kernelversion]/modules.dep
I don't know a way you could turn the automatic loading of modules off,
but in the map /etc/modprobe.d there are some files which give you some
control over the modules that will or will not be loaded.
If you could turn the loading of modules completely off, I doubt your box
would be able to boot, off course depending on the modules you have
already baked straight into your kernel.
