But from the point of the ALSA system it's handled like a card, it's
even called "card4" or so by default. *Real* cards with real Midi
ports are automatically shown in the sequencer subsystem.  You don't
need virmidi to read from your soundcards input with Pd. But if you
want to make virtual connection between software, where one part is
not capable of handling the ALSA sequencer directly, you will have to
fool it. For that you need a snd-virmidi module driven thinggie. Well,
a virtual midi card.
