This behaviour comes from GNOME, I'm afraid... it has to be due to "gvfs" 
and udisks who manage this. They may be detecting these devices as 
"removable/hotplug" and displays them in nautilus.

Hum...yep, those volumes are being treated by GNOME as removable drives, 
dunno why :-?

Maybe you can disable from being displayed by disabling in "gconf":


But by disabling this will also affect to the rest of the media devices 
which you won't want :-)

There can be another possibility. How does you "/etc/fstab" file look 
like? If you manually add this two volumes at "/etc/fstab" they will
be considered as static mount points and there you can choose "noauto" 
to avoid automatic mounting at boot (I hope GNOME honors this setting).
