Modules must have an extension of .ko.
This having been said, it _does_ look in /boot/modules as well.
I'm able to load a module from either directory without
specifying the full path and / or extension and without either
directory being my current working directory on 6.1-RELEASE.
What's the problem you're actually having? What version of
FreeBSD are you running?

I believe that base system kernel modules for the currently
installed kernel should be installed to /boot/kernel and that
kernel modules from outside FreeBSD (e.g.: nvidia.ko) are
installed to /boot/modules.
