I saw people discussing that their PS4 controller would be recognized as an Xbox 360 controller if they use DS4Windows (that was the driver thing you needed, before Valve made their own DS4 controller support happen) and were guessing many of those Xbox 360 controllers might be DS4s really, but my personal guess is that Steam extrapolated the data from people who were willing to undergo the hardware survey and read out the hardware id and cross match it with their own database.

That would still mean many of the cheaper SNES controllers would fall under PC Gamepad, as you said, but the more unique and expensive ones like an 8BitDo SNES pad (those even work on Wii U and Switch IIRC) could be recognized and then filed under SNES-controllers.

Gamecube controller higher than wheel and DIY controllers together is insane too.
