No, in reality the CPAN bundles have their counterpart in "virtual packages". Virtual packages are packages that have no content, only dependencies.
The "components" are groups of packages that *preferently* have few dependencies outside their group. This has the advantage of granularizing the releases, as in "we can release only the GNOME component, without waiting for the release of the KDE component".
