Emacs's terminals are not the OS's terminals.  It's the "output devices"
that Emacs currently uses.  So if you have several "emacsclient -t"
sessions (or used make-terminal-frame), each one will have its own
"terminal" (one might be on /dev/tty1, another on /dev/pts/4), and every
time you use make-frame-on-display on another display you'll get
another "terminal".

But Emacs isn't using these, hence they're not in the list.

No, M-x term is yet something completely different.  These are virtual
terminals created inside Emacs for use by other applications.
