The role of the boards of those two RIRs was to ensure the policy development process was followed correctly and to be ultimately responsible for the operation of the organization. I don't know if that's still the case.

That is the case.  In ARIN, there is an explicit wall between the board and the resource allocation process, so that the board is never involved in specific resource requests, reviews, or fulfillment.  I believe that to be the case in other RIRs as well.
