The documentation that comes with perl 5.24.0 does say $| (but the | is represented by the pod escape E<verbar>).  There seems to be a pod-processing bug.  The ‘perldoc -oHTML’ that comes with perl handles this just fine, so the site must be using some custom code that needs to be fixed.  I am forwarding this to the maintainer.
