It is exactly the same as on i386.  That is kind of the point of debian.
Every architecture should be as similar as possible.

That would be udev doing its job.

You can always do: cat /proc/partitions

Or dmesg |grep sd

And see which scsi device the usb device is.

It likely is NOT mounted.  It is just detected and the device exists.
You can mount it of course.  gnome-volume-manager and the like on the
