I suspect that your module-ini-tools/kmod are built without support for
compressed modules. One method to verify this is to run it against ldd :

$ ldd /sbin/modprobe (0x00007fff918ed000) => /lib64/ (0x00007ff9317f1000) => /lib64/ (0x00007ff9315d5000) => /lib64/ (0x00007ff931214000) => /lib64/ (0x00007ff930ff2000) => /usr/lib64/ (0x00007ff930ddd000)
/lib64/ (0x00007ff931a06000)

As you can see, mine depends on liblzma and libz so it was clearly built
with support for both of them.
