I narrowed it down further (I think). Here is the beginning of the code:

package Dancer2::Plugin::ESS2::Auth;
use strict;
... snip use statements ...
use Dancer2::Plugin;

register ess2_check_user => sub {
    my $dsl = shift;
    my %db_info = %{$dsl->config->{'db_info'}};

... snip ...

.... more register statements ...

If I edit the above to

    my $dsl = shift;
+ print Dumper $dsl;

I get all the information I would expect to be under the config key, e.g.
'config' => {
                      'plugins' => {
                                             'ESS2::Auth' => {
    all the data from the plugin config
                     'db_info' => {
                                            the database connection settings
etc ...

Dumping $dsl->config however returns only the contents of
when I would expect it to return the 'plugins' key and the 'db_info' key
and the rest of it.

Thanks for any and all input :)
