What methods of phonological analysis did you use to completely determine
the phonological inventory of your lect, and where is the phonology
published? :)

What you probably mean is that none of those words have a phonetic segment
that you associate with intervocalic /r/. That's not the same thing as
saying that the words have no /r/, which is contingent on the overall
structure of your phonological system.
