It is called simply sensor. Generally speaking, any sensor is an instrument that convert a physical quantity (Weight, movement, sound...) to an electric signal that could be treated and understood by a processor.

it is just a door switch that connects the door chime/alarm to ground(negative)

when you open the door , the door switch connects the chime so it plays tiny tones to remind you the door open.

also when you leave your lights on when engine is off and you try to open the door, it plays again.

when you turn on the lights with engine off, it may sound too.

depending on how it was set up by the manufacturer of your car.

they can connect it to any system that they think needs reminder alarm/tone to drivers.

it can also be connected to keys, that when you open the doors with key on ignition switch but engine off. it will beep a sound

you're talking about the pin switch which activates the beep. It goes in when close the door.
