I'm afraid that the system will not panic.
When do rmmod nf_conntrack_ipv[4,6],we already call nf_ct_iterate_cleanup
to destroy the nf_conns which belongs to l[3,4]proto  protocols,At this
time the nf_ct_destroy still points to destroy_conntrack because the module
nf_conntrack is hold by l3 and l4proto.
You can check the function nf_conntrack_l[3,4]proto_unregister.

Can you make it a little clear?
The reproduction and oops dump stack is useful.
