No, Nikon scanners don't vary the brightness of the LEDs. The
"analog gain" option in NikonScan only changes the CCD exposure
time. I've traced the commands that NikonScan sends to the
scanner, and the field it changes is definitely the CCD exposure
In addition, the scan speed is proportional to the "analog gain"
setting, which it wouldn't be if NikonScan were only changing
the brightness of the LEDs.
