Sequential files can be accessed through extrapartition transient data queues. The PCT table is used to define transactions and has absolutely nothing to do with files, sequential or VSAM.

With the last several versions of CICS (spanning a number of years), FCT entries are not even required for VSAM file -- RDO entries are replacing the old tables. And extrapartition data sets are not defined using FCT (file in RDO).
