It seems that web technology treats URIs as magic tokens that can be
resolved to access byte streams (not necessarily by HTTP).

It seems that semantic web technology wishes to treat URIs as magic tokens
that can be used in chains of logical inference (not necessarily specified
in RDF).

URIs themselves are merely constrained strings.

Are the web and the semantic web really that closely related at all?
