not sure, but have you tried customize-group with cperl?

in particular, there's a section on indentation with a lot variables
you can tweak.

in general, when behavior in some mode you don't like, first thing to
try is customize-group, followed by the mode name (may or may not end
in “-mode”). Not all major mode support this customize feature, but
most big ones or well written ones do.
