modules.builtin and /sys/modules

I just realized that several modules that are in modules.builtin are not 
in /sys/modules/ ; why is that?

Also I had a case where I made a kernel module builtin and now does not 
appear in modules.builtin or in /sys/modules/ (but it works as expected 
and the device is available). Why is that?

I once read that every module in the system (builtin or not) is in 
/sys/module, is that wrong?
