But there's a lot of others too. Hmm, does this mean that the RO data
sections that are in modules are not set to RO?

There's a bunch of separate sections that are RO. Just look in
include/asm-generic/vmlinux.lds.h under the RO_DATA_SECTION() macro.

A lot of the sections saved in module.c:find_module_sections() are in
that RO_DATA when compiled as a builtin. Are they not RO when loaded via
a module?

If this is the case, there probably is going to be a lot more sections
added to your list.
