That's a surprisingly good question (surprising that it's hard to
clearly find the answer, not about you!) :-) I believe that everyone who
works on pkgsrc believes that pkgsrc itself is under a modifed BSD
license.  But README doesn't say that, and doc/pkgsrc.txt at least does
not make it obvious.  That said, your conclusion about pkgsrc being
under a 2-clause BSD license seems entirely reasonable given what's
easily findable.
