I think you might be confusing /etc/modules-load.d/ (names of modules
to load statically) with /etc/modprobe.d/ (and the old /etc/modutils/*)
which has options, and aliases for autoloading modules.
I find /etc/modules is the easiest place to put the names (just the
name, one per line) of any modules you want loading permanently. This
location should work for wheezy too.
