pppd unrecognized option 'plugin'

I'm trying to use the ppp driver. In my console output I get the
following error:

Starting pppd...
/usr/sbin/pppd: In file /etc/ppp/options: unrecognized option 'plugin'

Inside the /etc/ppp/options file its using the following plugin.

# Use the PPPoE plugin

The file is where its supposed to be /root/usr/lib/pppd/2.4.4
but it seems like the ppp driver does not recognize the 'plugin'
option (like the error states)

What could this be and how can I rectify it?
