Question on module.symvers in linux kernel


I wanted to understand is there any significance of the path section in module.symvers file after building a kernel module. Does it have any relevance apart from just showing where the module has been built from?

Modules are stored with the same relative path under /lib/modules/<ver>/kernel.

Is it really required that kernel modules are built in this path /lib/modules/<ver>/kernel....Path column in the Modules.symvers autmoatically picks the path from where the module is built.
