Yes, "%n" uses "/dev" (or the directory given with -d) as device
directory, if there is no leading "/" in the device name.
It might be a workaround for the problems with the temporary device
node (makedev macro seems to be the wrong choice...) but will get
other problems. If udev/hotplug doesn't create the device node fast
enough the call will fail. This was the reason to implement the "%d"
support in the first place. May someone has a good idea how to
do the node creation correctly...
