/modules.old is created as part of the kernel installation process as
a place to back up your old modules so you can recover from a failed
kernel update.

/dist is probably (<- means I'm not sure) leftover from the
installation process. It may be used by /stand/sysinstall to mount
things if you run that.

/modules.old will be recreated as needed. /dist may not, but should
only cause problems with sysinstall not being able to mount a
distribution. If you never use sysinstall, it won't be a problem.
