I am running Debian. Sid to be precise. Here is the version of SANE i just

$ apt policy libsane1
  Installed: 1.0.31-4
  Candidate: 1.0.31-4
  Version table:
 *** 1.0.31-4 500
        500 http://deb.debian.org/debian sid/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

I looked up the bug report [0] and it said it was resolved back at version

So, that seems curious.

permissions on usb scanners are not set correctly.

Ahh. Thank you for the hint!

The setfacl gets run a few times (different udev events and such) - there
are some errors due to DEVNAME not being set in the environment. I've
modified the rule accordingly so that the setfacl only gets run once:

# cat /etc/udev/rules.d/70-scanner.rules
ACTION=="add" \
ENV{DEVNAME}=="?*" \
ENV{libsane_matched}=="yes" \
RUN+="/usr/bin/setfacl -m g:scanner:rw $env{DEVNAME}"

Debian is also migrating (IIRC) to a usr-merged environment, so I changed
the path for setfacl.

All seems to be working now.

Thank you again for the help!
