Both lines are very suspect. When I ls what’s inside the first directory
Air > ll /opt/local/var/macports/home/Library/Preferences/
-rw-r--r-- 1 macports admin 314139 7 Nov 18:33 com.apple.dt.Xcode.plist
This looks to me very much like a hardlink or a protected file.
Air > ls -lORa /opt/local/var/macports/home/Library/Preferences/
drwxr-xr-x 3 root admin - 96 8 Nov 14:53 .
drwxr-xr-x 3 root admin - 96 25 Oct 2016 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 macports admin - 314139 7 Nov 18:33 com.apple.dt.Xcode.plist
But that doesn’t mean anything in my case, since I have disabled SIP for files (yes, I got rid of several dumb apps such as Chess or Stocks, I only have a 128 MB SSD).

SIP protection might have been extended to newer files between 10.13 and 10.14.
