I think you mis-read what I said.  I first wondered why you did
not say "return unless -d _" and wrote (seemingly more
inefficient) "return unless -d $_".  The comment is to clarify
why '$' is needed.

In other words, after this setup:

        $ rm -fr d dl
        $ mkdir d
        $ ln -s d dl

you do not see an output from this:

        $ perl -e 'lstat "dl"; print "is-dir\n" if -d _;'

but you do from this:

        $ perl -e 'lstat "dl"; print "is-dir\n" if -d "dl";'
