Read the docs for Pod::Coverage. You can easily specify additional items to consider private and not needing coverage with also_private. If you don't want to take that extra step, just document them as public or private in the pod, either inline -- or better yet -- in sections marked "PUBLIC METHODS", "PRIVATE METHODS" etc.
