I have no idea how that'd work, like if there's registration with various entities (label, her own publishing, etc) and/or if payment comes from those places, etc...

I'm not at all sure, though, just a vague memory of reading that those songs were special to Nicks because she wanted others to get the money from them. I specifically remember reading once that Nicks was in part upset about Silver Springs because she called it her mother's song and said any $ from it would go to her. I could be misremembering...absolutely I could.
Royalties from SS were set up to go to her mother.
Royalties from Beautiful Child were to go to a UN child thing...

Here it is. It was for UNICEF, Year of the Child.

It was discussed on here in this thread:
