Is Black forced to transpose in KID?
I look things as white : I usually play 1 e4 as White but KID as Black on 1 d4 ( and as White in Thematics ) ,so I know KID much more than Modern

1. ...d6 vs 1. ...g6 Modern
1. ...g6 tells White I'm fianchettoing no matter what right from the first move. 1. ...d6 appears more flexible because it keeps the possibility of 1. d4 d6 2. c4 e5 as well as the Philidor, Old Indi...

1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nf3 d6 4.Be3 (Anti Modern)
The move order:
1.e4 g6 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nf3 d6 4.Be3
Appears to cause some problems for the Modern player. There is an option of going for the Pirc with 4...Nf6 and 95% of the time we would get 5.Nc...
