"Collectd::Plugins" is the intended namespace. We did use a different
namespace for a while, while the Perl plugin was in development, and I
think we simply forgot to adapt the synopsis in the manpage and the
example config.

It's fixed in the 4.8 branch and will be merged into 4.9 eventually.
Thanks for pointing this out :)
