When you add a listener with the same port as an existing listener your command will fail although these listeners are on different networks:

$ srvctl status listener
PRCN-2044 : No listener exists
# Add a listener on network 1
$ srvctl add listener -l LISTENER_NET1 -k 1 -p 1525
# Start this listener
$ srvctl start LISTENER -l LISTENER_NET1
# add a listener on network 2
$ srvctl add listener -l LISTENER_NET2 -k 2 -p 1525
PRCN-2061 : Failed to add listener ora.LISTENER_NET2.lsnr
PRCN-2065 : Port(s) 1535 are not available on the nodes given
PRCN-2035 : Port 1535 is not available on node(s) or virtual host(s): blnhp1121
