If you tested it in a VM, then you would have seen that Perl is in the base.

Using this file:

http://fastly.cdn.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/6.2/amd64/install62.iso

If you extract one of the files will be:

   6.2/amd64/base62.tgz

then if you extract that file, one of the files will be:

   usr/bin/perl

so yes, you are right. the trouble is that Perl is not available in the "live"
environment. When you first load, you get this:

   Welcome to the OpenBSD/amd64 6.2 installation program.
   (I)nstall, (U)pgrade, (A)utoinstall or (S)hell? s
   # type perl
   perl not found

alternatively, if you do run the installer, then "Remove disk from virtual
drive, then "reboot", it does work:

   # type perl
   perl is /usr/bin/perl

So only the "installed" environment has Perl.
