Scanners are tools/components used by the system O/S.  As such, there is no O/S on a scanner but there is programming developed and instituted by the manufacturer...to allow the tool/component to be used by the system O/S.

 

Generally, a scanner is no different than any other tool component, used by the system O/S and the programming which typically allows this...are called drivers.

If the scanner is microprocessor controlled, there will be a RTOS (Real Time Operating System) determined by the type of MPU it uses. Often, a device using a microprocessor that Linux will run on uses an embedded Linux. This is common for routers, and the LG robo-vacs I had the misfortune to have to try to fix some years back...
