I'm looking at it as "is the member attending" and both SS and RS/PH are able to answer that question.
If you try to divide them up, then the question becomes who records the 5th Sunday? Plus, it's possible that some wards juggle things around when the normal schedule is disrupted. As such, "hard coding" who can record what days may not be desirable.
(For example, General Conference will be Oct 3rd. Is Oct 10th "first Sunday" or "second Sunday"? Keep in mind, there's 5 Sundays that month. If you hard-code things, the answer has to be logical and binding on every unit.)
russellhltn's analysis is spot on.

When they think that there was no SS, RS or PH that Sunday and delete the attendance, they will delete it where it is supposed to be as well. Sorry, this is not going to end well.
You are the ward clerk. Your job is to provide training: "The ward clerk coordinates record-keeping instruction for assistant clerks and for quorum and organization secretaries." You have direct influence on how well it is going to end. Time to go to work.
