No, it does not.  PORTEPOCH could never go backwards or be reset.  It is
the way we deal when version scheme changes so "newer" version is less
than "old", or when for some reason port must be downgraded (yes, these
things happen from time to time).

You should have bumped PORTREVISION (wraps every version update, thus
being cheap), but now it's probably too late: accidental errors like
this should normally be reverted in a matter of minutes.

Please refer to relevant PHB chapters for gory details, and be careful
next time.
