Yes and no. The backend will download the firmware to the scanner 
automatically (as does the windows driver). See 
http://snapscan.sourceforge.net for more information.

The firmware is only loaded into the internal RAM of the scanner. Once 
you switch off the scanner it is restored to it's original state.
