Did you try to actually check the directory's presence ? I think OP is
onto something here:

raph at atlantis:~$ dpkg -L libglib2.0-0 | grep gio/modules
raph at atlantis:~$ ls -l /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gio/modules
ls: cannot access /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gio/modules: No such file or

This is on a Jessie amd64 server, headless, no recommended packages,
libglib2.0-0 version 2.42.1-1+b1. But on a Jessie i386 server, same

raph at kanon:~$ dpkg -L libglib2.0-0 | grep gio/modules
raph at kanon:~$ ls -l /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/gio/modules
total 0

Indeed, the amd64 version doesn't actually ship the directory, although
it's listed as belonging to the package.
