libusb looks for USB device nodes under /dev/bus/usb first, then under
/proc/bus/usb. It's transparent to SANE.

udev manages /dev/bus/usb all by itself, providing your udev is recent
enough and your kernel is >= 2.6.14. Using the udev rules file
generated by sane-backends (using sane-desc from the tools directory,
sane-desc -m udev) works automagically.
