Yes;   however,  a statement about some responsibility for the IN-ADDRs is
not a mere technical detail of some extra service from ARIN. The reverse
allocations go hand-in-hand with an allocation itself and are absolutely
vital  ---  these details are probably more important for resource holders
than WHOIS technical details.

The number policy should make it clear where the resource holder has a
responsibility to maintain these, and what kind of structure for the DNS
services the resource holder will need to provide their customers' reverse

The NRPM  _does_  specify similar details about WHOIS;
although it does not specify how resource holders are to actually operate
their RWhois servers,  we have things such as:

" Reassignment Information
Each IPv4 assignment containing a /29 or more addresses shall be registered
in the WHOIS directory via SWIP or a distributed service"
