According to the pkg-plist:

@unexec if cmp -s %D/etc/hp/hplip.conf.sample %D/etc/hp/hplip.conf;
then rm -f %D/etc/hp/hplip.conf; fi
@exec if [ ! -f %B/hplip.conf ]; then cp -p %D/%F %B/hplip.conf; fi

 if there were any changes to hplip.conf file, it doesn't get removed
when the port is uninstalled.  And if the file exists, it won't
overwrite your changes.

Did you customize this file before you re-installed?

Does the hplip.conf.sample file have scanner-build=yes?
