Confirmed.  This is a program internal to the Perl 5 core distribution which, strictly speaking, has no public documentation.  Because generates files in .pod format, it has a long stretch of text in a heredoc which is in POD-like format.  That's probably confusing what does.

Perl 5 Porters doesn't have any direct control over, so we'll have to discuss a solution with that site's maintainers.  I have opened this ticket:
