Subsurface scattering does not include normal/bump by design. You can get it to do so by enabling SSS autobump.

 

Incidentally, you would expect to see the bump/normal primarily in the specular, which is not apparent in your render. 

Can't find what you're looking for? Ask the community or share your knowledge.
