No that has nothing to do with modules. Look at this line from
/etc/init.d/boot (this is from SuSE 7.1 but should apply 1:1 to 7.3)
# Find and activate volume groups (HM 1/1/1999)
if test -d /etc/lvmtab.d/ -a -x /sbin/vgscan -a -x /sbin/vgchange ; then
    echo "Run file system check on root for LVM activation"
    while read des fs type rest; do
        case "$fs" in

So if he get's rid of the /etc/lvmtab.d/, created by the lvm tools then
the system will not try to activate LVM on boot.
