I'm afraid you're mistaken, or I'm not explaining well enough :)

Here's an example, on the wikitech wiki because it's still a few
versions behind Wikimedia wikis and therefore the previous behavior
still applies:

There's https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Guillom/Animals with
a list of sections, and
https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Guillom/Dog that redirects to

If you open the Dog link, you arrive on the Animals page (as expected
of a redirect) and the address bar does show "Dog#Dog":

If you test something similar on a Wikimedia wiki (with the new
behavior), you'll see the difference.

So the sentence in Tech News is correct: If "Dog" redirects to
"Animals#Dog", you now see "Animals#Dog" instead of "Dog#Dog".

I can't reproduce this issue, but if it persists, I recommend you open
a Bugzilla ticket with the steps to reproduce, so the developers can
investigate: https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org
