  Just list the module name.  There's no need to wrap it in an expansion.  There's no need to put *module* configuration into a virtual server.

  For the *values* of variables.  i.e. "variable = value". The "value" can be expanded.  Not the "variable" part.

  There is no documentation or examples that shows the expansion of module names in a virtual server.

  I don't see why that's useful.  And the code definitely doesn't support it.
