Those are two different things. To have multiple instances you should have -DMULTIPLICITY and for the threads -DUSE_ITHREADS 
You can check if you have this flags with perl -V

if you compile perl *without* threads but with MULTIPLICITY then you will have multiple instances of perl in freeradius but no *parallel processing* 

The best is to have both MULTIPLICITY and USE_ITHREADS
