Thank you for confirming that sequence files can't be read directly.
Is there a common or frequently-used way of creating a template from a
sequence file *without* launching DnaPlotter? I'd like the user's first
view to be the circular plot.

Yes it is template driven, so there is no -f option. You can manually create
a template or export a template out from a DNAPlotter session. Example
templates can be found in the online manual page:
The template then restores the track information that gets saved to the
