controls problem in 8.2.3-REL?

This named.conf entry:

controls {
        unix "/var/" perm 0600 owner 5 group 5;

appears to have the effect of chmod-ing /var/ to 0600 (I can't
tell what it does to ownership, as it's 5/5 already).  If I change the
configuration file entry to

controls {
        unix "/var/" perm 0700 owner 5 group 5;

then /var/ is in mode 0700, while /var/ is a
socket in mode 755, owned by root.

This doesn't look right.
