I do not believe that is correct when storage and full read and write permissions are set by the app for itself when installed as they normally should be by default (they are by both Pocketbook and Moon+ Reader) and a non faulty card or format. In fact, if I was finding that some sort of scan has to take place first I would, as first response, suspect that I had a problem related to the card (permissions, format, corruption, etc.).

For example, I can copy a book onto any device here from a PC to a folder on the card, not being the folder nominated as the main one in my device's reading app, and then open the book with the device's file manager, selecting my reading app when the file manager asks what reading app to open it with, and the book will open without another copy being made. So, the reading app has never been opened after the book was put on the card prior to it being opened from the file manager and so was never scanned by it beforehand.
