Yes, they are called NULL ports. The control port does not have port
config space but is still accounted in max port number of the switch and
also has the type TB_TYPE_PORT but you access it when you talk to switch
config space.

Since the type is the same, I would like to keep it like this and
differentiate control port using the port number 0 where needed.

DP adapters also get hotplug events and in subsequent patches we add
handling for those in this function as well.
