unless you set PREFIX to something else than /usr/pkg ...

True, but that scenario requires the user to build his own packages and then he would be responsible to update hints.

Don't get me wrong -- this behavior masked a few RPATH failures in packages that went undetected until PKG_DEVELOPER check improved. We don't want to fall back to /usr/pkg/lib, we want RPATH to be set right. I was just commenting on how a broken RPATH setting during the link wouldn't necessarily be detected by a package not working.
