I checked the API pages as well as the documentation but there there is only reference to
the MaxEnt model:

The decision is made at training time, depending on the settings either
maxent or perceptron is used to train a model. The produced model can
be loaded with the code above and OpenNLP takes care to setup
everything behind the scene correctly.

We distribute a perceptron model for English.

For information about how to set the training algorithm please consult
our documentation:

We currently don't have a way to share models or take care for the 
distribution, mostly for copyright/legal issues.
The way we think it should be fixed is to share open source training data.

Anyway, we have some instructions no how to train the POS tagger on 
various public corpora in our documentation.
I suggest that you take a look there:

Hope that helps,
