Unknown

If your Google Ads account includes other types of conversion actions, you may find that queries and reports return conversion actions where the ConversionAction.type is UNKNOWN. The API does not support managing these conversion actions, but returns them in reports in order to provide complete results for key conversion metrics such as metrics.conversions and metrics.conversion_values.
