blacklisting a module via MOD_BLACKLIST=() in rc.conf doesn't actually prevent the module from being loaded by udev on next reboot.

As a workaround, I need to add "alias module_name off" entry to modprobe.conf

Your using "!" before the mod to be blacklisted, right?

Is this related to the testing udev package?

Please check the new udev package in testing

Using MODULES=(!module_name) to blacklist modules from being loaded with udev works again in latest udev in testing.
