They are. The Option driver is used exclusively for USB-connected GSM

Some of these cards have an on-board USB, not connected to the outside
world, which is connected via an OHCI adapter. Plugging the thing into
your compurter, you first see a new generic USB port which just happens
to contain only a GSM modem.

For Nozomi-driven cards, your first priority should be to get that
driver cleaned up and into the kernel. That's out of scope for
linux-usb, so please limit your followups appropriately. ;-)
