This already appears in the docs: However, when one of these verbs appears inside an atomic group or in an assertion that is true, its effect is confined to that group, because once the group has been matched, there is never any backtracking into it. The "verbs" are the backtracking control verbs. Perl behaves in the same way. I will repeat the information above in some more places in the documentation.
