Please note that I tested using poudriere -- and poudriere by design has two
phases: one to fetch all sources as listed in distinfo and one to build,
which *by design* does not have network access.

Yes, Poudriere disallows network access during building, however
all of the now failing ports built fine with devel/gradle 5.0 even
without network access .
It looks like Gradle 5.6 wants to pull in additional things or cannot
find some of the provided dependencies now for some baffling reason.
How or why this happens now is what needs to be figured out.
