There are probably a number of kernel modules that you do not need... But that's no reason to remove them. They are generally quite small, and harmless to have on your system if they are not loaded.

Is for me. One of many reasons I switched to FOSS was to get rid of bloatware. "MODULES_OVERRIDE=" variable is there for you to build only the modules you need.
