Yes, it does.  When the umassX provider shows up, GEOM immediately
tastes it and creates geoms for the individual slices.

If it really doesn't on your system, try the following:

# /etc/rc.d/devd stop
# logger START
# sysctl debug.bootverbose=3D1
# sysctl -b kern.geom.conftxt >geom-before
[insert umass device, wait 10 secs]
# sysctl -b kern.geom.conftxt >geom-after
# sysctl debug.bootverbose=3D0
# logger STOP
# /etc/rc.d/devd start
# awk '/START/{s=3D1}{if(s)print}/STOP/{s=3D0}' /var/log/messages >geom-logs

then post the contents of geom-{before,after,logs}.
