[Rd] ‘:::’ call

I have a package (TSdbi) which provides end user functions that I
export, and several utilities for plugin packages (e.g. TSMySQL) that I
do not export because I do not intend them to be exposed to end users. I
call these from the plugin packages using TSdbi::: but that now
produces a note in the checks:
* checking dependencies in R code ... NOTE
Namespace imported from by a ‘:::’ call: ‘TSdbi’
See the note in ?`:::` about the use of this operator. :: should be
used rather than ::: if the function is exported, and a package
almost never needs to use ::: for its own functions.
Is there a preferred method to accomplish this in a way that does not
produce a note?
