cons25l1 (that's the letter `l' between the 5 and the 1) is a modification of the default cons25 terminal type which supports Latin-1 character sets. Handy if your native language includes accented characters. It's never been used in the default /etc/ttys as far as I know --- that's still using the US-ASCII cons25 type for all the vty's --- so what you've found must be the result of an experiment you or somebody made on your machine a while back and have subsequently forgotten about.
