An alternative to using "media" could be "virtual (device) driver disks" 
[1]. The addition of "virtual" makes clear that the disks are not real but 
devices exposed in some way (USB probably?) by hardware whose main purpose 
in something different than storage. Does that cover this?

BTW, should/could such devices be excluded for partman?

[1] "device" optional
