How to see all the stuff that is compiled into the kernel or modules?

If lsmod is to see all the modules that are loaded at the instance, and during menuconfig, we can choose which to be compiled into the kernel or as modules.

Is it possible, when we have no copy of the .config file, ...
1) to see/know all/most of the modules that my kernel have(not loaded yet)?

2) to see/know the stuff that is compiled into my kernel?

Best to be done in commands, not through GUI
thanks in advance.

Have a look under /lib/modules/`uname -r`
Will be quite a few in all likelihood.
