When figuring out baking ratios, is canned pumpkin considered a liquid or a dry ingredient?

Most pumpkin whoopie pie recipes call for vegetable oil, but I would like to use butter, so I'm trying to convert my chocolate whoopie pie recipe. I have a basic understanding of baking ratios and think I could make the conversion, but I can't figure out if canned pumpkin would be considered a liquid or dry ingredient or some combination of both. Do you know how pumpkin factors into baking ratios?
