The responsibility for whistling, deciding, and signalling back row
attacks/blocks is indeed part of USA Volleyball rules. Rule 126.96.36.199
to be exact.
In practice, however, I've encountered many up refs prefer to whistle
back-row faults themselves and request down refs to discretely signal
the attack when they see it.
The up ref, from his/her elevated position, is better able to judge
whether the ball was competely above the height of the net during a
back-row attack, or if the back-row player reached above the net
during an apparent back-row block.
