Yes, that is correct. The ping utility uses ICMP echo request/ICMP echo reply while, by default, Net::Ping tries to establish a TCP session with the echo port of the target host. Try making this change to your program:

$p = Net::Ping->new('icmp');
Update `ping` OK : is alive $p->ping NOK `ping` OK : is alive $p->ping NOK `ping` OK : is alive $p->ping NOK
Just to clarify, what you are seeing here is most likely the result of the specified hosts allowing ICMP echo requests, but not having a service listening to the echo port.
