Edit your port to be completely void of the word "EXAMPLES"

The only way the EXAMPLES are being installed is if you have something  
like this in your port:

         @${MKDIR} ${EXAMPLESDIR}
         ${INSTALL_DATA} ${WRKSRC}/examples/* ${EXAMPLESDIR}

Just don't put that in your port and everything will work as expected.  
There is no magic here; there is no possible way for the port to  
automatically detect and install EXAMPLES. It's up to you as the  
maintainer to define what the EXAMPLES are in order for them to be
