Are you using official binary packages?

If so I guess this is a known issue.

You should attach the error message you're getting, from the console or

Anyway I guess the error message you get is that the module is incompatible
with the installed kernel.

At present official binary packages are built against FreeBSD 13.0. This will
change shortly after FreeBSD 13.0 EOLs (exp. on August 31st).

SO the official binary packages are expected to fail on 13.1. Only option at
present is to compile the virtualbox-ose-kmod port yourself.

This is a known issue affecting all kmods in the ports tree.

SO, can you try building the kmod yourself and report back?
