Well, I have no idea what Linux does, except as implied by what you
quote.  But check out scsictl's "scan" command.

Last I checked, the stock tree has no way to remove devices.  I've got
patches that add a "detach" command to scsictl, if anyone wants 'em,
though they're relative to a source tree a few months old (1999-08-13).
