/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist_{net,sound}.conf were automatically created (I did NOT create them; in fact, I didn't even know how to blacklist modules) with MODULES I blacklisted using the deprecated !bang syntax for debugging purposes. However, after removing the '!' the modules were still blacklisted because of the modprobe files that were generated.

I think that's very confusing. You should either

1) have full backwards compatibility for the !blacklisted syntax by removing those entries from the modprobe files if the exclamation mark was removed
2) or have no backwards compatibility at all, ignoring the exclamation marks/complaining.
This task depends upon
