I was confused about this too! Through doing research, I believe you are correct as a bomb calorimeter is an isolated system and thus matter and energy cannot leave the system. I believe this ensures that it is in fact a perfect system.

What characterizes such a system and are there any examples besides a bomb calorimeter?
I would like to know as well, though I'm pretty sure that it's just another name for an isolated system. I checked through the textbook, and there was no mention of a perfect system anywhere within. Nor does Google provide any answers. Was it described as a perfect system somewhere in the lectures?
