I don't see any "preserve-libs" option in the man page of make.conf.
Anyway, the bottom line is that equery may list an installed package as
owning a certain library file, when in reality that file belonged to an
older version of the package than the one installed, in which case it
may be or appear misleading.

Yes sorry this "preserve-libs" feature is part of portage-2.2. In any
case, a revdep-rebuild will fix your problem.
