Anyone know what the 336, 337, and 338 would be for an RDA USNP MARC record? I'm guessing they would either be for the print or possibly omitted entirely?

Here's the section in LC PCC PS 0.0 on USNP if anyone needs a refresher:


Newspapers
LC practice: LC's records for U.S. newspapers in microform follow the guidelines of the United States Newspaper Program (USNP). USNP is not required to follow the CONSER practice of creating separate records for U.S. titles in microform, but generally uses the "master record convention" to account for the various physical forms in which a newspaper is held. The bibliographic record describes the newspaper as it was originally published. The physical format, whether original newsprint, microform, or reprint, is described in the Copy Field of the OCLC local data record.
