If anyone knows the answer to my above questions I would still appreciate it.

But I wanted to share a bit of history I found...an old freebsd-hackers thread
titled "Kernel linker and undefined references in KLD":

https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-hackers/2010-July/032418.html

That thread contains a discussion of this issue along with a proposed patch
that apparently was never taken forward. One portion of it is quite similar to
the small patch I used to validate my theory (only returning STB_GLOBAL symbols
from link_elf_lookup_symbol).
