SERVICE MARK can be found as u+2120, so there's no omission here.

P.S. In german usage, there is a symbol similar to the registered sign:
WARENZEICHEN, looking like (Wz):
 Capital W and lowercase z enclosed in an ellipsis
 It is often raised (like TM).
It is mainly used in dictionaries (Duden, Langenscheidt) to denote
words which are protected as trade marks (e.g. Weck(Wz)-Glas).
