No this is all as expected.

The platform driver's probe() function can be __init because
the platform device is registered with the special:
platform_create_bundle() function which takes a probe() function
and the actual "struct platform_driver" does not have .probe
set at all.

Since we need to do manual cleanup on remove() however we need
a remove() callback and that does sit in the struct platform_driver
and since remove() can normally also be called on manual unbind
of the driver through sysfs it cannot be in the __exit section.

I say normally because IIRC platform_create_bundle() disables
manual unbinding but the section checking code does not know this,
all it sees is that the "struct platform_driver" is not __exit
and that it references the remove() callback and therefor the
remove() callback itself cannot be __exit.
