Obviously something loaded them, maybe when trying to mount a

os-prober.
os-prober loads them all, because it tries all types on all
partitions. Then, mount by type "auto" might do the same, at least
till a hit is found. os-prober tries all because it also probes
extended partitions, which have no type, thus all probes are bound to
fail.

When is os-prober run?
I thought it was part of mkinitrd not part of the boot process?

In addition, people like jdd are reporting that only the fs drivers they
use are there after boot.
