perl(mixin)  would correspond to mixin.pm.

perl-Spiffy doesn't provide this, as can be easily demonstrated:
perl -e 'use mixin'

=> Letting the rpm "Provide: perl(mixin)" is a bug.

Cf. above. it doesn't. It's packages using perl(Spiffy) which apply magic to
access the Spiffy::mixin method as "mixin"
=> It's those applications which have to "Requires: perl(Spiffy)" to get this
working. If rpm generates bogus "Requires: perl(mixin)" for those applications,
these have to filter them out.
