This will clear that up some:

$ perl -le 'print ref *STDOUT{IO}' IO::Handle

The note in the BUGS section of the IO::Handle pod is explanatory too:

BUGS Due to backwards compatibility, all filehandles resemble object +s of class "IO::Handle", or actually classes derived from that class +. They actually aren't. Which means you can't derive your own class f +rom "IO::Handle" and inherit those methods.
