set pendantic mode on

Actually, DBD::Sybase doesn't use an obsolete/old protocol. It uses whatever freetds has available, which is usually TDS 7 or 8, which happens to be the current native protocol for MS-SQL.

It's just a different implementation from the native ODBC API, but it's the same protocol. And if you use DBD::ODBC on Unix/Linux with freetds, then you really use the same protocol as DBD::Sybase, but with a different API.
