SEEDO is a waypoint on the final approach course to runway 17L.

You can see it on the approach plate (link below) 8.9 DME (7.2 nautical miles from the threshold).

Aren't these intersections of Victor airways or otherwise intersections of VOR radials? I guess that there is another newbie. Me.

If it is an intersection, it is probably on an airway or radial.  Waypoints are just a point in space usually on RNAV (GPS) approaches or departure routes.  In the case of SEEDO, it is a DME fix on the localizer.
