The Perl::Critic distribution is fully self-compliant. If you have Test::Perl::Critic installed, then it automatically critiques itself during the build.

But I'm just like everyone else who has read PBP: there are some practices that I'm still working to adopt and there are some that I completely reject. Does this make Perl::Critic a heretic? I don't think so.

Regardless of how it is actually written, the idea behind Perl::Critic is to help developers follow clear and consistent coding practices. It doesn't actually matter what those practices are. I just chose to start with PBP becuase they are well known and come from a reputable source. Any developer is free to create Perl::Critic::Policy modules that enforce their style and practices.
