    And where these modules are supposed to be loaded from?

    UEFI can load code into RAM from some storage with FAT FS.
    Try to use rEFInd: UEFI loads rEFInd executable, then, if used decieds, rEFInd loads another stuff.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/REFInd

    GNU-EFI and TianoCore are supported as main development platforms for writing binary UEFI applications in C to launch right from the rEFInd GUI menu. Typical purposes of an EFI application are fixing boot problems and programmatically modifying settings within UEFI environment, which would otherwise be performed from within the BIOS of a personal computer (PC) without UEFI.[5]

    You claimed before that storage with FAT FS is not needed because UEFI is "extensible".
