No, there isn't a 1-1 mapping between the sub-types in the AdWords UI and
the API. AdWords UI sub-types are mostly used for controlling which AdWords
UI elements are available when working with a campaign in the UI. The
provides an additional refinement over advertisingChannelType
when specifying the primary serving target for ads within this campaign.
Campaigns created through the API are equivalent to *All features* campaigns.
you had selected a particular sub-type during campaign creation, this value
will be returned in the response.
I hope this helps.
