it does, dracut.conf is simply sourced as a shell script

$ for i in squashfs ext4 ext3 ext2 vfat msdos sr_mod sd_mod ide-cd cdrom ehci_hcd uhci_hcd ohci_hcd usb_storage usbhid firewire-sbp2 firewire-ohci sbp2 ohci1394 ieee1394 mmc_block sdhci sdhci-pci pata_pcmcia; do lsinitrd /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img|grep -q ${i}.ko || { modinfo $i &>/dev/null && echo "$i is missing";};done

usb_storage is missing
sdhci is missing
sdhci-pci is missing

ok, I'll add those missing modules to the hardcoded list of modules.
