Probably, but that's not the official way to do those things in modern Linux.

Linux is supposed to automatically load modules it needs (if it needs them
and they are indeed built as a module) on first access of the device file.

So we'd have to extend the generator of /run/booted-system/kernel/lib/modules
in guix to take a list of packages and union those, put the result in the
directory mentioned here and run depmod on it.

I have no idea where that generator is in guix. 

In order to set up udev, just add an udev service-extension in your service
(see gnu/services/sane.scm for an example).
