Question, do you have the VirtualBox-kmodsrc RPM installed? I believe
that's necessary so kmod can rebuild the modules when the kernel is
updated. I don't use VirtualBox myself, so I can't speak to it.

That is not the case when you use Oracle-provided VirtualBox builds. Akmod and kmod kernel modules are installed as a part of RPMFusion's version of VirtualBox.
