Do you have find_multipaths set in multipath.conf? It defaults to off.
If it's enabled then multipath will only create maps for WWIDs it
already knows about (listed in /etc/multipath/wwids) unless there are at
least two devices with the same WWID or the user forces the operation:

Mar 17 12:26:50 | checking if sdm should be multipathed
Mar 17 12:26:50 | wwid 35333333000000000 not in wwids file, skipping sdm

Turn it off and multipath will happily map a single path scsi_debug for me:

# multipath
create: mpathg (35333333000000000) undef Linux,scsi_debug
size=1.0G features='0' hwhandler='0' wp=undef
`-+- policy='round-robin 0' prio=1 status=undef
  `- 8:0:0:0 sdm 8:192 undef ready  running

Iirc this is enabled on at least some current distros by default to
avoid creating maps for USB keys and the like.
