 This is working as designed.  You _can_ disable built-in modules with
 modunload(8), but they will not be removed from memory and cannot be
 replaced with a different version.
 If you want replaceable modules, don't include them in the kernel; load
 them manually during boot (via /boot.cfg) or during system startup (via
 /etc/modules.conf), or let them be auto-loaded.
