If the driver can find this ID in the list of attached devices, it should find it. But I guess this is something related to the FreeBSD USB stack, which I know nothing of.

The root of the problem was the permissions on the ugen device node - when NUT dropped privs it couldn't open it.

I should clean up my script to translate udev rules into devd ones and send a patch for the NUT port to install it so the perms get changed automagically..
