> What is an exported package?

  A package documented with its exported symbols and intended for others to
  use.  Any serious implementation will need housekeeping or internal
  packages that they do not publish any documentation for.

  No, but a vendor can choose to document and tell you about a package, or
  choose to withhold such information.
