Motif finding doesn't necessarily need of multiple sequence alignment, just to find profiles of short stretches of nucleotides (e.g. form 6-14) that are seen over and over in a list of sequences. One of the ways of getting some of these motifs is to compare them across species, and look at the ones that are conserved among them. In those cases, a multiple alignment for the genome of those species is used.
