Some misunderstanding. Situation is Windows applications use this key(for example ImgBurn app http://imgburn.com/) and because of this wine must create this key. On Ubuntu 14.10 (wine 1.6.2) this key is created and populated on every wine start. Also Windows 8.1 has this key. Key is not created on Debian because there is no /proc/scsi directory (ubuntu have this directory). Something is disabled in debian kernel configuration and wine cannot populate this key as I wrote in bug report. Maybe bug should be reassigned to kernel to reenable /proc/scsi interface.

Mentioned app works perfectly well on Ubuntu wine and does not work (cannot find cd/dvd drives) on Debian's wine because key absence. Anyway thanks.

Newer wine versions no longer have HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DEVICEMAP\Scsi.
