Out of curiosity, do the built-from-source openjdk ports have the support for the oldest macOS releases? In other words, picking, say, Azul, doesn’t support older OSes as much?

The assumption appears to be that if a port is using this portgroup, it requires Java, since it errors out in pre-fetch if no Java is found. So it seems like having no fallback by default is just causing builds to fail unnecessarily.
