I second similar behaviour with a Devuan ASCII system migrated from
Debian Stretch running eudev now.

root was able to mount the exFAT usb drives correctly.
Normal user was able to mount the device as e.g. /dev/sdb, showing
content existing before formating, but not /dev/sdb1 with correct
current content.

After repartitioning/reformating the device with fdisk/mkfs.vfat
everything works fine.
