Thanks for the expansion...

It seems you think that type and creator codes are stored in the resource fork. It is not.

Think of type/creator as on the same level as owner/group/permissions in UFS.

Again, since this is the most mis-understood thing about meta-data on the Mac: type and creator codes have nothing to do with the resource fork, and they do not require multi-forked files.
