No, but IIRC, at least MP4 can be either normal a file, or a playlist. 
Not sure how well the later is supported in VLC as of yet.

Generally, I am not sure how reliable the input item "type". It was 
mostly meant for showing different icons in the playlist, in which case 
misclassification is not a big deal.
