Sounds like a bug.

Confirmed

Its always the features that are never tested that don't work :)

not tested in bleadperl http://perl5.git.perl.org/perl.git?a=search&h=HEAD&st=grep&s=%24%3A

not tested in in perl 5.6.0

Pod::Text used it way back (but I doubt it really worked even then) but it no longer uses ir or format OUTPUT

but not tested 17 years ago in perl-5.000

Maybe it worked in perl-4, who knows, but it was never tested in perl-5, so it should probably be removed from the documentation or deprecated or something
