Wiring within a kitchen cabinet

I have a 6' above sink and counter kitchen cabinet configuration that consists of a 36" wide(15" high) center cabinet and 18" wide (30" high) cabinets on each side. I'm looking to place LED strip lights under the 18" cabinets and a surface mount line voltage LED spot under the center 36" cabinet.

My intent is to have a switched surface mount receptacle inside the center cabinet. Here is my question. The LED strip lights will require a 12VDC transformer(wall wart type) that I would plug directly into the receptacle. The line voltage LED spot I've purchased comes with a cord and plug which would also plug directly into the receptacle. What are the requirements for protecting the wiring within the cabinet, both the low voltage and the line voltage? Since each would be plugged into the cabinet receptacle, using Wiremold or similar probably isn't practical. Thanks

If they are cord sets they do not need extra protection.

The cords have molded plugs so it should be ok. Thanks for info.
