If your device was in the list, then you wouldn't seen multiples of
those error messages and would have seen the following message at boot
time itself.

scsi_dh_rdac modules is insmodded by multipath when multipathd is
started (by virtue of you having hardware_handler "1 rdac" in
your /etc/muliutpath.conf file.

So, it is effective when multipath starts.
