Working with kernel cifs, NFS

I am trying to understand how cifs and nfs modules work in the kernel. For
that i referred following link.
i did make modules_install to install necessary modules along with cifs and

To cross verify these 2 modules i did ls

ls /lib/modules/6.1.0-rc5/kernel/fs/cifs/cifs.ko

ls /lib/modules/6.1.0-rc5/kernel/fs/nfs/
blocklayout  filelayout  flexfilelayout  nfs.ko  nfsv2.ko  nfsv3.ko

ls /lib/modules/6.1.0-rc5/kernel/fs/nfsd/

ls /lib/modules/6.1.0-rc5/kernel/fs/nfs
nfs/        nfs_common/ nfsd/

ls /lib/modules/6.1.0-rc5/kernel/fs/nfs_common/
grace.ko  nfs_acl.ko

but when i do lsmod i dont see this modules. As per my understanding this
modules should installed and start listening with their port.

So am I missing something?
