Hello @bnfoat:

Malwarebytes 3 for Windows (MB3) does not scan network mapped partitions.  MB3 will scan directly connected partitions such as those on IDE, SCSI, SATA buses or USB connected.  Still though, for your system's security, and assuming no disabled MB3 modules, MB3 still monitors all reads and writes to network mapped partitions.

Thank you.

What 1PW says above is accurate.  In fact, Malwarebytes has never actually been able to scan network/mapped drives going all the way back to 1.x, however in the older builds it would behave as though it was scanning them, it actually wasn't.  The problem comes down to permissions and the way that Windows handles access to networked storage where the built in administrator and even local SYSTEM account do not have full read/write/delete access to networked drives.  The only solution I know of, which I believe is how some other vendors address this, is to 'spoof' the credentials of a local user account that has full access/permissions for the network mapped device.  It might be possible for Malwarebytes to implement a similar solution, however they generally prefer to avoid using such hacks/tactics as such behavior is more like malware than a security product (i.e. spoofing credentials and the like).
