Nobody seemed to answer, so I will answer it myself.
If you have package perl-homedir installed, it adds its stuff to
/etc/profile.d, and upon user login an existence of ~/perl5 will be
checked and this directory will be created if it doesn't exist.
It looks like perl-homedir appears in one of the package groups on CentOS 7.
If (like me) you don't like this, you can add to your kickstart file line
that will make this package excluded. Here are two lines I have at the end
of %packages group in my kickstart file:
