Standard channels are part of the M365 Group connected SharePoint site. Planner relies on M365 Groups to function. Private and Shared Channels spin up their own, separate, non-group-connected Sites (similar to Communication sites) that don't support Planner. As a workaround, you could create a Planner directly from the Planner app and then pin it as a tab using the 'website' tab, but I find it doesn't always load properly.
