Actually, I believe the spec does address the question in the following
passage (this is in the manifest parsing algorithm):


> If mode is "explicit"

Resolve the first item in tokens, relative to base URL; ignore the rest.

> *Drop the <fragment> component of the resulting absolute URL, if it has
> one.*


> Add the resulting absolute URL to the explicit URLs.


So it must be an implementation issue.
