I did use ldapadd and the ldap server is RHEL 7.

create the cn=module{0} dit so it can be populated. I don't know maybe I'm
asking the wrong questions.

As you correctly noted, ldapadd and ldapmodify are the same command. However, the syntax of an LDAP Add request is different from an LDAP Modify request. As Quanah already pointed out to you, you are trying to use some corrupted form of LDAP Modify syntax, but since the entry you want doesn't exist, you actually need to use LDAP Add.

The differences between these two are spelled out in the LDIF documentation.

from the docs

      5.2.2. cn=module

If support for dynamically loaded modules was enabled when configuring slapd,
cn=module entries may be used to specify sets of modules to load. Module
entries must have the olcModuleList objectClass.

I don't have a cn=module dit, how do I create it?

    The above is invalid.  I strongly advise you to read the documentation.

    Also, you should not be touching or creating any files inside the
    cn=config database.
