[Rd] WARNING Undocumented S4 methods 'initialize' - why?

Dear all,

I am just writing the documentation file for S4 class 'QualTreeSet' and get the following warning with R CMD check:

All my S4 classes have a method 'initialize' and R CMD check has never complained. Thus, do you have any idea why I get suddenly this warning for method 'initialize'?

Here is the code for 'QualTreeSet':


    representation(qualtype = "character",

                   qualopt  = "character"
    prototype(qualtype = "rlm",
              qualopt  = "raw"


setMethod("initialize", "QualTreeSet",


             qualtype = "rlm",
             qualopt  = "raw",
       if (qualtype == "") qualtype <- "rlm";
       if (qualopt  == "") qualopt  <- "raw";

.Object <- callNextMethod(.Object,
qualtype = qualtype, qualopt = qualopt, ...);
.Object_at_qualtype = qualtype;
.Object_at_qualopt = qualopt;


However, here is my code for a similar class 'ExprTreeSet' (which is the class from where I have copied the code):


    representation(exprtype = "character",

                   normtype = "character"
    prototype(exprtype = "none",
              normtype = "none"


setMethod("initialize", "ExprTreeSet",


             exprtype = "none",
             normtype = "none",
       if (exprtype == "") exprtype <- "none";
       if (normtype == "") normtype <- "none";

.Object <- callNextMethod(.Object,
exprtype = exprtype, normtype = normtype, ...);
.Object_at_exprtype = exprtype;
.Object_at_normtype = normtype;


In this case R CMD check does not complain, so why does it in the case of 'QualTreeSet'?

Here is my:
