Modules are loaded dynamically on demand. Recompiling the kernel usually doesnt have any significant benefits and you would lose all the bug fixes and testing in the Fedora kernel that has not been upstreamed yet. If you use a custom kernel, you would have to recompile everytime a update is released which can quickly become tedious. You would also lose the ability to report feedback to the Fedora bugzilla for any kernel related issues unless the problem is reproducible with the kernel supplied in Fedora
My 2 cents
