To my knowledge, RDA has no such instruction.  There is RDA 7.13.2
(Script), where we're told to "expression the language content of the
resource using one or more of the terms from ISO 15924..." (mentioned also
under 0.12).

There's also LC-PCC PS 7.12.1.3, which points to the MARC language code
list for terms rather than codes:
