Regardless of what you do ("letting the buds grow or not") more than likely it will divide heavily and you will not have the "single" large one at the end of the season.
I have found konjac to be very different from other common amorphs... Plants like paeoniifolius and bulbifer seem to like staying "big". (once they get there) Konjac in my experience always seems to get to a point where it just divides off into infinity after a while.

they are tubers...
There is a dominant bud that normally keeps the others from growing! I
don't think you would have multiple shoots (leafs) on one tuber!! you
should have just the one big tuber!1 But who knows it will take its own
Hope this would help and have fun growing
