lsmod listing

I'd like to know on the basis of what does the "lsmod" command list the modules. That is, why a particular module (say the "iptable_filter" module) is shown first in the list.

Thanks in advance

From the lsmod manual page:
lsmod is a trivial program which nicely formats the contents of the /proc/modules, showing what kernel modules are currently loaded.
