Interace #12 is MBIM, as shown by the device descriptors. Please provide
those descriptors and you will see that this interface is clearly a CDC
MBIM class interface.

Yes, I know these modems probe the control protocol so that you can make
QMI work on an MBIM control interface by sending it a QMI request as the
first messsage. This is still wrong, abusing a quirky firmware

You need to reconfigure the modem for QMI using the Sierra specific AT
command or QMI request (tunneled in MBIM!) to properly switch it to QMI
mode, which will appear as a vendor specific interface number 8 (and 10
if you enable both QMI functions).
