On these pages, the # links do not link to the top of the page, but
instead link to the current section within that page. These
"permalinks" allow you to capture the URL and anchor/hash to jump
directly to a particular page section. The URL you provided, for
example, jumps directly to a section part way down the page.
I've not seen this in use much or would consider it a "standard
practice", but it does provide useful functionality at the cost of
multiple, repetitive links on a page.
