I'm not sure why this is occurring. Could you confirm that your not including the Hibernate jars as part of your application?
It certainly does sound like a bug, I'm just not exactly sure of where the bug is yet.
I tried adding the same persistence unit hints as you used, to an existing WildFly (12.0.0.Final) unit test and I didn't get any deployment errors.
Try downloading the latest nightly build of WildFly and see if you can recreate the failure with that.
Can you enable TRACE level logging of the org.jboss.modules package in your standalone/domain configuration and attach the generate logs to this thread?
Which vendor and version of Java runtime is this?
this is the full log: https://hastebin.com/eruzatonip.vbs
This is my logging settings https://ctrlv.cz/M8rb <-- is that correct? Seems like it didn't help really... I'll try the nightly version as well.
Also, my Java:
java version "1.8.0_151"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_151-b12)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.151-b12, mixed mode)
This is Oracle Java running on OS X 10.12
