No, they apparently aren't :(
I liked this solution more, no need to use an udev rule for something that
just needs to be run once (and on every boot), but sadly, the load-modules
script doesn't see the vars.
So the boot was quick, but no autoloading was done.
I manually added "MOD_AUTOLOAD=yes" at the top of load-modules script, and it
worked. (obviously that's not a solution, it was just a check).
