xorg.conf does not _need_ to load extmod by default.  If you don't specify which
modules to load, it loads a default set, which includes extmod.

I suspect you have installed nvidia's drivers, using a package that
(erroneously) adds the "glx" module to the Modules section even when that
section does not exist, which causes the server to _only_ load glx.
