This would mean that the epson backend is not loaded at all. But at
least what you quote here isn't the same I wrote:

So I was talking about scanimage, not sane-find-scanner.

Some background information: SANE_DEBUG_BACKENDNAME (e.g.
SANE_DEBUG_EPSON) enables debugging for that speicfic backend. If you
set it and the backend is run, you'll get debug messages. This works
with all frontends, e.g. scanimage, xsane or xscanimage.

sane-find-scanner is not a frontend. It just checks the device files
for existing scanners therefore you don't get any additional messages.
