You are absolutely correct!! One should never code from a superbill. The description for mod 25 states "significant, separable......" What if the encounter dx was for a repair where the E/M is included, etc.? Or, what if the physician checked a high E/M level with minimum document which does not meet the criteria? Again you are correct!
