not sure if that's the problem:

# Support non-CSW packages. If you have your own packages that have a
# prefix that you want to use with pkgutil you must enable this otherwise
# pkgutil will skip every package not prefixed by CSW.
# NOTE: this also affects options like -c/C, however it's easy to filter the
#       output if wanted, e.g. "pkgutil -C CSW".
# Default: false

Did you set noncsw=true in pkgutil.conf?
