This Puppet 5.4.0 error message wraps up the situation in a pretty tidy 

Error: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 500 on SERVER: 
> Server Error: Evaluation Error: Error while evaluating a Function Call, 
> Cannot have code outside of a class/node/define because 'freeze_main' is 
> enabled (file: 
> /etc/puppetlabs/code/environments/production/manifests/defaults-firewall.pp, 
> line: 14, column: 3) on node

The freeze_main setting is documented 
<> to trap 
code other than classes, defined type, and node definitions appearing at 
top scope, *other than in the site manifest*.  The error message is 
complaining about a manifest in its environment's site manifest directory, 
which would not be evaluated at all if Puppet were not treating it as part 
of the site manifest.  So why is Puppet complaining?  Is this just a 
straight-up bug, or is there more to it?
