Not used, usually doesn't mean no pad. Usually even not used or not connected pins have pads in footprints. I would not recommend to remove pads from footprint just because that pins are not used.

It is very unusual to put a pin into symbol which would not be used in footprint (that may generate warnings or errors). If you would really need to do something like this, simply do not place the pins into symbol, or if you really would like to have them, maybe just draw "a fake pin" into symbol (use lines to draw the pin).
