The pilcrow is used to denote paragraphs.  In word processors where
hard newlines separate paragraphs it would be acceptable to use the
pilcrow to denote hard newlines.  This is acceptable also for
longlines-mode in Emacs.  But otherwise in Emacs where hard and soft
newlines are not normally distinguished you could put pilcrows only
on positions denoted by `paragraph-start' and `paragraph-separate'.

Ok, but it seems that word processors edit documents, not a source code file.

In the case of documents, ok, it makes sense to think in terms of paragraphs. It also makes sense to think in terms of paragraph when editing a text file in Emacs which is a text file document.

In the case of source code file, what is a paragraph?

Editing a source code file in Emacs and typing M-} (forward-paragraph), the point goes to the next empty line, no matter where this empty line is located (in the middle of a comment, command, function, etc.)

Editing a source code file in OpenOffice, each source code line is a paragraph.
