That's most often the case.  dh-make-perl tries to guess the licenses 
by parsing code comments...

If you don't want to learn debian/copyright syntax (which is perfectly 
reasonable), you should run 'config-edit -appli dpkg' 
(from libconfig-model-perl) and edit the copyright fields. 

the command license-check --copyright will give you some hints on how to 
fill the license data. In case of soubt, you'll have to look for license 
data in the code.

See the 2nd section of [1]

Hmm, I think you forgot the --pkg-perl option. That may explain this behavior.
