I did some research and it seems that udev's modem-modeswitch tool is
not the same as usb_modeswitch.
The latter one seems to contain much more rules for a broader range of
USB 3G/GSM/HSDPA modems.
Can they be merged to udev?
Just compare:

Here you have only rules for Option modems.
What about the rest? ZTE, Huawei, ...
