I'm installing Gentoo inside a VM and I'm at the part now where I need to choose the modules that need to be loaded automatically but I don't know which modules to load automatically and whether I need to add any modules to the file.

Most of the time you don't really need to add any modules. Most of what you need should be loaded automatically in boot time. Only if you feel that one or more modules are missing, then you should add it. My /etc/conf.d/modules is empty, even as my kernel is completely modular.

Nowadays a modular built kernel and its tools is smart enough to almost autoload what it needs

Well my /etc/conf.d/modules has some modules but they're commented out. Should I uncomment any of these? I uploaded a screenshot of the VM:

Those are examples, have nothing to do with your setup.

And, there is no need for having /etc/init.d/local in a runlevel as long as /etc/conf.d/modules is empty.
