Correct. I suppose there's nothing stopping a browser from sending you
the "anchor" part of the URL, but it's not really supposed to be part
of the resource identifier (the resource is the "page", not the
particular place on the page where the user is scrolled-to) so it's
pretty much never sent to the server.

Javascript, on the other hand, will likely have access to this
information, so you could always make an AJAX request to the server to
provide/get more information.
