If I remember correctly the XS's  ejabberd.cfg calls mod_ctlextra .
From ejabberd 2.1 and greater this has been replaced by mod_admin_extra. 
See http://www.ejabberd.im/mod_ctlextra and http://www.ejabberd.im/mod_admin_extra

I also remember reading a doc saying the default node names have been changed.
