If really secret door is in the dungeon, randomly determinate where it is located (for example drop d4 on dungeon map to see it's location.

Really secret door should be additional puzzle. It can be found as searching for secret doors but it's opening mechanism should be more complicated and need serious effort. Really secret dungeon secret door might also be triggered with a trap.
