It seems the documentation uses the term "subroutine name" in quite a confusing way. Check the examples:
Use of a subroutine call, rather than a subroutine name, as an argument to exists is an error.
So, in this context, "subroutine name" includes the ampersand.
Considering strict, note the exceptions to strict 'refs':
We are not calling the subroutine, we're just checking it exists/is defined.
