The ulpt module is loaded by /etc/devd/usb.conf. The file says "please
do not edit", and I don't know how those modules are disabled.

That printer supports PostScript directly, so following the LPD setup in
the Handbook is the easiest course. Deinstall CUPS first, because it
has not-quite-compatible commands with the same names as the real ones.
If the printer has a network interface, that is the preferred
connection. But USB will work, too.
