yeah i just checked with other USB webcams and barcode scanners and
what i found is that your observation is correct.
for all webcams i got
either bDeviceClass = 255 (Vendor Specific Class)
or bDeviceClass = 0 (Defined at Interface level) with bInterfaceClass
= 255 (Vendor Specific Class)
but for USB barcode scanner i got
bDeviceClass = 0 (Defined at Interface level) with bInterfaceClass = 3
which is not detected by sane-find-scanner.
