As far as I see there is neither a brother4 driver (backend) in SANE
nor does SANE know about your USB scanner model.

results "No matches found." and
does not list a "Brother MFC-J6710DW" and even
does not list a "brother4" driver (backend).

Therefore it seems you use a currently unknown third-party driver.

Regarding "Third-Party Scanner Drivers" have a look at
