I tried it on debian Jessie (different machine) and ended up with the same results as on Archlinux - shuffled partition table, no md super block... This however didn't explained how then debian can boot at all when connected directly. So I bought new USB adapter and that was it, end of the story, debian didn't do anything wrong, all this fuss was caused by the malfunctioning USB adapter.
Thank you for your time.
