I don't think this is contradicting. The mustek_pp backend comes
in two flavours: CIS and CCD. At that point the CIS driver was
included and CCD driver was added later by Jochen Eisinger,
still before the 1.0.10 release.

I assume that "mustek_pp" is not commented out.

It is fully functional as of sane-backends 1.0.10.
The most likely reason the scanner is not detected is that
you haven't configured the sane network daemon (see
Without that daemon, you can only scan a super-user (root).
Have you tried "scanimage -L" as root ?
