This is a deliberate exception, see strict:

There is one exception to this rule: $bar = \&{'foo'}; &$bar; is allowed so that "goto &$AUTOLOAD" would not break unde +r stricture.
and running your code through B::Deparse you get (leaving out all the 'feature' stuff):
sub test { goto \&{'greet';}; }
which triggers the exception.

UPDATE: checking your actual code, it is in sub AUTOLOAD, exactly the reason why the exception exists. If something about strict mode confuses, check strict first.

[ambrus]: Corion: four days a week? hmm
[Corion]: ambrus: I did that in 2012 and 2013, to try it out, and I found the available time to be worth more to me than the money
[Corion]: I've started that again this month (now forever instead of a limited time), and it already destresses me a lot
[holli]: There are Anti Vaxxer weeks at IKEA.
[Corion]: Of course, it's a 20% cut in the money I receive, while the work doesn't necessarily reduce at all, but my approach is to make the work take longer instead of fitting 5 days worth of work into 4
[holli]: 50% off all children coffins.
