AFAIK, script for running the tests is immediately ran after the boot process is complete so there is no wait time.
Regardless of what the kernel is doing, it seems like a fundamentally dumb test to specifically ask deferred probe to wait for up to a minute then complain that it hasn't finished after 11 seconds :/
IIRC that stuff is expecting the modules to be loaded from the initramfs and checking from the main system which is a bit more sensible (at least in the case where there is a main filesystem). It's vulnerable to races but less so, especially given the time a Debian rootfs typically takes to boot over NFS.
