as rule of thumb, python modules ports have supbort for different python version.

you can see what specific python version subport the generic port install (based on your default variants in <prefix>/etc/macports/variants.conf) looking at the library dependencies.

py-simpy @4.0.1_1 (python)
Sub-ports:            py37-simpy, py38-simpy, py39-simpy, py37-simpy-docs, py38-simpy-docs, py39-simpy-docs

Description:          SimPy is an object-oriented, process-based discrete-event simulation language based on standard Python.

Library Dependencies: py39-simpy

thus: no, this is not a conflict and no, you are not supposed to uninstall any of them.
