Which is correct?
On a side note, is it even needed since I run a monolithic kernel?
It's not needed. It's also not needed when building sound drivers as
modules. AFAIK, ALSA_CARDS serves no purpose anymore, since it was used

alsa-driver package has been removed from portage.
You can simply delete ALSA_CARDS from make.conf.
