That only happens if you use grub-install with --modules or you directly
create it with grub-mkimage.
By default there's just one module and there only needs to be one.
The one to access /boot/grub.
It doestn't make sense to include more then one fs module into core.img
With grub.efi the situation seems to be different though. But IMO it's a
bug there.
