I think it is more like, you won't see the results you expect if you
supply /dev/sdX as the argument because /dev/sdX is a physical device
and not a block device to Linux.

Thus an apparent non-answer is actually the correct answer returning no
block attributes queried for a physical device.

It's apparent in the first line of the man page...

NAME
 blkid - command-line utility to locate/print block device attributes
