Virtual Servers Types L4 and L7

Just need expert comments on it.

Layer7:If a virtual server is type 7 then it means that F5 will decrypt the packet will check the content and will make the descion accordingly, we will have SSL offloading and can apply WAF policy on it to controll the traffic, We can apply it on HTTPs and HTTP(no SSL offloading) type of traffic.

layer4:in layer 4 F5 will see that if its a TCP or UDP and will route the traffic towards the resources as per define rules.

Things which i need to clear in my head is it that how F5 box knows that a virtual server is of type 7 or type 4 if the type of VS is standard VS.
