The variable gets set by what you do, but you did not create a minibuffer
frame. The alist by itelf does nothing. If you create a minibuffer frame,
the alist will apply to it.

>From the Elisp manual, node Initial Frame Parameters:

 -- Variable: initial-frame-alist
 If these parameters specify a separate minibuffer-only frame with
`(minibuffer . nil)', and you have not created one, Emacs creates one
for you.

 -- Variable: minibuffer-frame-alist
     This variable's value is an alist of parameter values used when
     creating an initial minibuffer-only frame--if such a frame is
     needed, according to the parameters for the main initial frame.

As an example, this library creates a minibuffer frame: (doc here:
