Yes, that would be possible, too, but:
modprobe emits an error that is suppressed by the --quiet parameter:
| # modprobe --set-version="126.96.36.199" --ignore-install --show-depends r8168
| FATAL: Module r8168 not found.
Problem is that this warning is not very helpful since the module does
indeed exists, just modules.dep does not contain a reference to it. So
if modprobe were to emit a proper warning (like "Module r8168 not found
in modules.dep, try depmod -a $version") , the --quiet would still have
to be removed from the call to modprobe.
