Do you know how they became virtual? Virtual inputs are created by making to Knx, cbus, modbus etcIf you remove the Mapping the virtual input should no longer be virtual

I have a few mqtt sonoff PIR sensors that I have connected. When I try to create a new virtual response the only zone option I can select is 1 & 2, the only way I could create a virtual response is to manually edit the Action codes which I know nothing about. 
The code I used was 154,17,1, 255 
This allowed me to create a virtual input to zone 17

Comfigurator does not allow you to make a zone virtual. You are not allowed to directly change the zone to Virtual in the Zone Settings as that would probably cause a lot of problems. 
The only way to remove the Virtual Setting now that you have edited the Action Code is to edit the cclx file manually using a text editor.

eg

    <Zone Number="1" Name="Z01-Start_Stop" ZoneTypeName="SwitchNO" EntryPath="true" Restore="false" Partition="0" Eol="NoEol" VirtualInput="true" Announce="false" OnResponseName="TurnON" OffResponseName="TurnOFF" />
Change Virtual Input="false" for the zone. Make sure you backup a cpioy of yhe cclx file before you attempt this
