Little nit-picking: the `modprobe` command is available (and used) on
Arch Linux, and it *does* use the files in /etc/modprobe.d (see also
modprobe.d(5) for what the files are used for). So this is not really an
indication for whether OP's using Arch or not.

However, yes, automatic module-loading at startup is not modprobe's
job, so it's the wrong location to configure such stuff. Please have a
look at modules-load.d(5) instead (and take a second, more precise look
at the wiki article Mauro posted).
