I tested 2.6.23-rc3 along with Debian unstable on a older pentium2-era
PC that has a ISA bus sound card that isapnp finds. snd-sb finds it too
using isapnp. However, there seems to be no module autoloading
So, the question is: should isapnp moudle autoloading work with current
kernel + current udev?

Not out-of-the-box, I guess. There are likely no aliases in the kernel
modules which match the hardware for these old drivers. You could put
them in a modprobe config file maybe.
What's in the module? What does:
/sbin/modinfo <kernel module name> | grep alias
And what does the hardware say? What does:
grep . /sys/bus/pnp/devices/*/id
Right, that will not match. You could add:
alias pnp:dCTL0001 snd-sb16
or some other file in that directory.
We may switch to acpi based module autoloading in the future and add
"acpi:*" aliases to the modules intsead of the broken pnp alias hack.
Just to check if that would work, can you please provide the output
grep . /sys/bus/acpi/devices/*/modalias
