I would propose another change in wording as you do not download modules but
"Users of linux and linux-lts kernels may download the requisite
corresponding precompiled wireguard module package. Users of other kernels
will require the wireguard-dkms package and corresponding kernel headers to
compile the module."
Installing wireguard-tools package with pacman gives info about optional
dependencies, so the name of the required packages should be obvious.
