The preview itself is continuously updated (at least with the LiDe 50,
which I just tested). As far as i know no SANE frontend does the same
when doing a real scan.

read by the frontend. So it's just that nobody has implemented that
feature yet.

I guess this is about gray mode (not lineart)?

With the Lide 50 it looks like this for me (xsane, no
gamma/brightness/contrast corrections):


I.e. the darkest four blacks look the same. However, I have no
comparison how Windows or Vuescan does this.
