So I was about to add an update of the Kconfig text along this line
while I was respinning the patch anyways, and guess what simplefb
currently cannot be build as a module, so this is a non-issue.

I'll update my "simplefb: Add support for enumerating simplefb dt nodes in /chosen"
patch to not have a module_exit in the next version, since that is
not really useful if it cannot be build as a module anyways.
