xtables-addons slackbuild compiles to the wrong kernel version with sarpi and raspberry pi3

I'm trying to get xtables-addons to work on my raspberry pi. It will compile fine and build the package but, my issue is that it is building the kernel modules for a kernel other than what I am running. The slackbuild puts the kernel modules into /lib/modules/5.10.23-armv7/extra/ where as my kernel is 5.10.23-v7-sarpi3. I also tried just copying the modules into /lib/modules/5.10.23-v7-sarpi3/extra but when I modprobe the module I get the following:

modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'xt_geoip': Exec format error
I ran modinfo on the module and this is the output:
filename:       /lib/modules/5.10.23-armv7/extra/xt_geoip.ko
alias:          ipt_geoip
alias:          ip6t_geoip

name:           xt_geoip
vermagic:       5.10.23-armv7 SMP mod_unload modversions ARMv6 p2v8
for comparison, I also ran modinfo on one of the modules for my kernel:

filename: /lib/modules/5.10.23-v7-sarpi3/kernel/net/rose/rose.ko
alias:          net-pf-11

intree:         Y
name:           rose
vermagic:       5.10.23-v7-sarpi3 SMP mod_unload modversions ARMv7 p2v8
parm:           rose_ndevs:number of ROSE devices (int)
The only difference I see is the vermagic, the slackbuilds uses a kernel that I don't have and is using ARMv6 rather than ARMv7

Is there any way to get the slackbuild to build against the kernel I have?

Can you post a link to the SlackBuild script you are using? It is difficult to know what went wrong without it.
