Not sure why you bring the deferrals here, they have nothing to do with
module removal. Also, deferrals are rarely issued by the leaf driver, and
more often by providers of resources (GPIO, regulator, interrupt, etc).

Right, so this is the default udev rule:

/lib/udev/rules.d/80-drivers.rules:

# do not edit this file, it will be overwritten on update

ACTION=="remove", GOTO="drivers_end"

ENV{MODALIAS}=="?*", RUN{builtin}="kmod load $env{MODALIAS}"
SUBSYSTEM=="tifm", ENV{TIFM_CARD_TYPE}=="SD", RUN{builtin}="kmod load tifm_sd"
SUBSYSTEM=="tifm", ENV{TIFM_CARD_TYPE}=="MS", RUN{builtin}="kmod load tifm_ms"
SUBSYSTEM=="memstick", RUN{builtin}="kmod load ms_block mspro_block"
SUBSYSTEM=="i2o", RUN{builtin}="kmod load i2o_block"
SUBSYSTEM=="module", KERNEL=="parport_pc", RUN{builtin}="kmod load ppdev"
SUBSYSTEM=="serio", ENV{MODALIAS}=="?*", RUN{builtin}="kmod load $env{MODALIAS}"
SUBSYSTEM=="graphics", RUN{builtin}="kmod load fbcon"
KERNEL=="mtd*ro", ENV{MTD_FTL}=="smartmedia", RUN{builtin}="kmod load sm_ftl"

LABEL="drivers_end"

So udev (and systemd) want to load kernel module on any action besides
device removal. Shortsighted decision I'd say. I'll send a patch to
systemd, in the mean time you can simply adjust your local rule to read

ACTION!="add", GOTO="drivers_end"

Thanks.
