According to Tom Gundersen:

#btrfs, like all the other fs modules, should be loaded on-demand when
#"mount" is called.

Additionally, both GRUB and syslinux, according to the documentation, support finding a bootable kernel and initrd image that are stored on a BTRFS filesystem. The only potential problem I read about had to do with using a /boot subvolume, but I wasn't creating any subvolumes at the point where I was installing the bootloader. I was planning to create a subvolume for /home, but this shouldn't have caused a problem with either bootloader, and it wasn't even created yet anyway.
