I can only explain 1.
by default, comments for a private method or variable isn't generated. With javadoc -private you enable generation of docs for these too.

Google for 'Javadoc command line option'
First hit - Javadoc manual at Read the Options section.
I bet it would have been faster to do this yourself rather than ask a question here
