I've a Cisco 3925 and it's not quite clear why an "1000BASE-SX SFP" entry is visible in the inventory. Is it only visible when the SX SFP is in use? (I've no chance to modify it.)

If you have an SFP module inserted, you will see the specific type.

You can choose to specifically use the inserted SFP, or choose to use the built-in copper connector, with the media-type interface command:

interface GigabitEthernet0/1
 media-type sfp

or

interface GigabitEthernet0/1
 media-type rj45
