You'll probably receive different answers to this one. The easiest is removing the entries from the toc by deselecting them in the popup that appears after generating it in Sigil.
I would however advise you to avoid header tags for things you don't want to appear in the TOC. Headers have structural meanings which go beyond "making the font larger", for instance I believe they are also used by screen readers to partition content.
In the books I produce I usually want the title-page to appear in the TOC, so I leave the book title as a differently styled h1 tag, and make classes for the other title page paragraphs which I then style.
