Why would salt not be included in yeasted & sweet bread recipes?

I just bought a cookbook with traditional Swedish cakes & cookies. While doing my first read through I noticed the coffee cakes & sweet breads did not include salt. I was always taught salt is essential for flavor & to control the yeast. Should I just add salt? This is an e-book so something may be missing...Thoughts anyone?
