You're reading the wrong section. Perl Policy describes both the
packaging of perl and of perl modules.
The `.3perl' extension is under section 1, which is for modules that are
part of the perl packages.
Section 3 deals with packaged modules, mandating `.3pm' so that packaged
modules don't conflict with core modules (the policy allows newer
versions of core modules to be packaged).
