Created attachment 262940
Test class A

For example:
I have public class A and
private class B extends A.
When I generate documentation, class B - invisible. It's ok.
But in class A I receive string: "Inherited by B". It is not right, because B - is private and hidden in documentation.
If I add public class C extends A. The problem disappears.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.8.6. Please verify if this is indeed the case. Reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed and please include any additional information
that you think can be relevant (preferrably in the form of a self-contained example).

Verified, it works correctly.

Today I noticed one new fact.
By default, classes in Java have private visibility.
So, they should behave similarly to private class.
If we remove the word "private" before declaration class B in example files - the behavior should be the same. However, it is not so - reappearing "Inherited by B"
