Having pg_dump not saving the function definitions is an intended
behaviour. Actually, this was different with admin80, and restoring a

I'd consider installing contrib modules as an act of installation, not
something that backup/restore should perform (finally, pg_restore isn't
able to do so, since it can't provide the dll/lib module).
