This was indeed the case. I hadn't realised that sane was installed as
an rpm and so I had attempted to install the 1.0.9 backends myself.

I removed the existing sane installation, found a new rpm for 1.0.9 and
installed and all is now working correctly. Thank you very much for your 
suggestions. I was so close!

BTW the RPM I found, and the initial RedHat 8 install puts the sane
stuff in /etc/sane.d rather than /usr/local/etc which is where the
distrib wants to put it.
