That's very helpful.
How do you interpret the LC-PCC PS for 2.12
'LC practice/PCC practice: Distinguish between phrases that are true
series and those that are not, with the latter sometimes included
elsewhere in the bibliographic record (e.g., given as a quoted note) and
sometimes not transcribed at all. A decision on series vs. phrase does
not apply to such specific information as publishers' and plate numbers
for printed music or publishers' stock numbers for sound recordings;
such numbers are addressed in RDA 2.15.2 and RDA 2.15.3.
PCC practice: If a decision concerning the phrase has not been recorded
in the LC/NACO authority file, base the current decision primarily on
judgment. The guidelines below apply to some common situations; it is
not a closed list. Generally, make series authority records (SARs) for
categories 1) through 5) if your institution does series authority

In RDA you can transcribe what is actually on the source in the series
statement. In RDA you can even use sources outside the resource see
However you can make a relationship to the series as a whole. In MARC
this is what we do when we use an 830. In RDA this is a whole-part
relationship and it obviates the need to relate directly to other membrs
of the series.
Of course, there may be other types of relationship between the specific
volumes of a series that you need to bring out, for example if there was
a sequential relationship between the resource being catalogued and
another volume in the series, but not reflected by the series numbering.
These relationsbips can be mande using authorised access points, if you
have enough information, or using structured or unstructured
