Read narrowly, I think RFC 3986 says the latter.

That seems to happen a bit in practice. For example, the "Media Fragments URI 1.0" WD [1] and the "URI Fragment Identifiers for the text/csv Media Type" draft [2] specify how fragment identifiers should be interpreted for particular media types outside the relevant media type specifications.

It seems to me that for findability, you'd really want the normative definition of fragment identifiers to be referenced from the media type registration, but that it might be in a separate location from the media type specification.
