That is the *intended* outcome, to be sure. *But* as noted in the OP,
and from some edge cases I've personally run into; the "general rule"
I listed, does apply. :)
I have now removed the package using pkg delete -f -n perl5-5.24.1.r4_1 and was
then able to install from ports without problems:
 root@gw2:/usr/ports/lang/perl5.24 # pkg info perl5.24-5.24.1.r5_1
Name : perl5.24
Version : 5.24.1.r5_1
Installed on : Thu Jan 12 17:53:45 2017 CET
Origin : lang/perl5.24
