Yes. For NFS you first have to configure a export i.e. shared folder and 
afaik in /etc/exports, but this is easily google-able. Maybe you also 
need some userspace stuff, I think there is a nfs-kernel-server package 
on debian.

When all this is setup the kernelmodule gets loaded, that is maybe done 
by udev or by systemd, I don't know the details.

It should be similar for cifs, in that you need to do some configuration 
in userspace first.
