If so why are all the functions/methods in dwthelper.utils.d marked private .
Does that do something that I have missed or are they just superfluous?

some are public static

Public is the default. If members are private it is an error to access them from outside the module. Marking something "public" at the module level (or anywhere else it would be public by default) helps readability.
