Sorry, you're right, my bad memory. The DB25 is at the other end of the standard DEC cables, of course.
The relevant documentation is table 5-26, page 181 (5-131) of the PRO technical manual, volume 1. "Terminal L" (pin 9) is the signal that says "this is a console terminal" -- jumper that to signal ground (pin 7). That is also stated explicitly on page 177 (5-127), third paragraph.
