It doesn't mean that.  
FreeBSD can't recognize which a volume of USB audio 
is for the purpose of recording or not.
But it isn't concerned with detection of a recording port.
(`Recording source: mic' has no mean for this device. 
When the wiring for recording doesn't have the selector,
FreeBSD show it.  
Though SB external 24bit has two port for recording, 
line-in and mic, these appear as one port for computer.)

I have the same USB audio device, 
and I can record with it on FreeBSD-current.
We must be able to record on FreeBSD after 5-stable.
But we can't record on FreeBSD 5.4.

Sincerely yours,
