The syntax for include and @include differ.

In a /etc/pam.d file, the syntax of a line is:
    <type> <control> <module-path> <module-arguments>

  include is used as a <control>

  @include is used as a <type>


Then the semantic is also different:

  include:
    include all lines of given type from the configuration file specified as
    an argument to this control.

  @include:
    parse a given file at the given location of the /etc/pam.d file
