If you mean vsftpd, from a quick look at the source code
(version 3.0.3) it hard-codes it to "ftp". I don't think it sets
anything that you can use in a PAM module.

If you need that you probably have to request this as a feature from
vsftpd. Judging by the code, it shouldn't be that hard to implement.
