This is the guidance from the ATO with a similar situation;
Example 1: RESC and salary sacrifice type S
Jackie earns $60,000 per annum. During the employment process she negotiated an extra 2% ($1,200) super above the super guarantee (SG) rate. Because Jackie negotiated with her employer to pay extra super this must be reported as RESC.
