I use a /etc/modprobe.d/foo.conf file with
# overriding Debian default
options cdc_ncm prefer_mbim=Y
for this. It's a bit unfortunate that this is necessary, but I don't
know how to otherwise solve the problem.
As explained earlier, I really did not anticipate the situation caused
by the EM7345 when initially recommending the 'prefer_mbim=N' distro
default. I expected any device claiming to be NCM+MBIM capable to
actually support NCM...

Normally MM will be started as a d-bus service by NetworkManager.
But starting it from an init script should also work if you prefer that
for whatever reasons.
