multipathd shouldn't be removing and devices.  It removes paths from is
list of monitored paths, but not from the filesystem.  Try doing this
without multipathd running, and see if the device still disappears.

That all being said, multipathd shouldn't be monitoring the device
if it's backlisted.  Did you start up multipathd before you blacklisted
the device?  If so, you need to run

# service multipathd reload

To make multipathd pick up the new configuration. Or you can simply
restart it. You can check to see if it is monitoring the paths
by running

# multipathd -k"show paths"
