There's nothing specific you have to set, except you want to load
modules automatically if they aren't yet loaded through discover,
hotplug-light or something like that.

hotplug-light and syslog-ng are started through grml-autoconfig.
grml-autoconfig is the main part of the hardware detection.
grml-autoconfig gets started in runlevel 2:

root at grml ~ # grep grml-autoconfig /etc/runlevel.conf
30      -       2               /etc/init.d/grml-autoconfig

Don't you see something like in http://grml.org/tmp/fastboot.png
when booting your grml system? It sounds like grml-autoconfig is
never run, this would explain the problems you did consider so far.

Compare the files /etc/runlevel.conf /etc/runlevel.conf.hdinstall.
Is grml-autoconfig present when booting your system?
/etc/grml/autoconfig set to 'yes'?
