No you misread the Xorg.0.log:
[ 50.161] (II) Module radeonhd: vendor="AMD GPG"
[ 51.636] (EE) FATAL: RadeonHD presently does not work with kernel modesetting (KMS).
[ 50.167] (II) LoadModule: "radeon"
[ 52.214] (II) UnloadModule: "radeonhd"
It's using radeon.
Besides if radeonhd stopped working that would be a regression too, but that's
not what we have here.
