In my case I also observe the same.

Yes, I think this is exactly my problem. If there are existing nodes,
recv_register is called before the HCI is configured and pvt->rx_regs is
filled at mesh/mesh-io-generic.c:738. This means that later scanning is
assumed to be enabled. However the call to bt_hci_send with
BT_HCI_CMD_LE_SET_SCAN_PARAMETERS fails as the HCI is not yet
initialized and the callback set_recv_scan_enable() supposed to enable
scanning is not called.

So when loading a node, scanning is assumed to be enabled, but it is
not practice.

I believe my workaround should work on your system (maybe after
adjusting the number of iterations of the loop).
