How can I tell which version of CIFs is in the kernel if CIFs module isn’t loaded?

I need to determine the CIFs version that exists in my kernel, but the CIFs module isn’t loaded.

my-user@ip-XX-XX-XX-XX:~$ modinfo kernel/fs/cifs.ko
modinfo: ERROR: Module kernel/fs/cifs.ko not found.

When I run find /lib/modules/$(uname -r) -type f -name '*.ko*' in the list of results I see /lib/modules/4.15.0-1058-aws/kernel/fs/cifs/cifs.ko

How can I find out what version of cifs.ko exists, awaiting potential use, in my kernel? I’m using Ubuntu 18.04.
