It should be the equivalent of ejecting a CD or floppy on a physical
machine.

If you do this through libvirt (with the attach-device command and
suitable XML string), then the change should be reflected in the XML.

If you managed to send a monitor command to the KVM guest that didn't go
through libvirt, the change wouldn't be reflected in the domain XML for
the majority of operations (media eject included).
