Yes, it works when it's not explicitely listed in /boot/loader.conf;
no abandonware messages. :-)

Correct, and confirmed:
# kldstat -v | grep "/boot/modules"
4 1 0xffffffff82821000 250464 amdgpu.ko (/boot/modules/amdgpu.ko)
5 2 0xffffffff82a72000 76570 drm.ko (/boot/modules/drm.ko)
7 4 0xffffffff82afa000 12f30 linuxkpi_gplv2.ko (/boot/modules/linuxkpi_gplv2.ko)
8 2 0xffffffff82b0d000 6d0 debugfs.ko (/boot/modules/debugfs.ko)
9 1 0xffffffff82b0e000 f181 ttm.ko (/boot/modules/ttm.ko)
So from the kernel module and installed packages perspective,
everything seems to be in place. Remaining question: Why does
X still use VESA? And what is that "modesetting" driver that
gets loaded and unloaded?
X is complicated. Maybe nobody knows. :-)
