No, because I would have already gone back, read some more, then put the book down.

For example:
footnote reference (e.g. page 10)
stopped reading (e.g. page 20)
footnote text (page 300, linking back to page 10)

Kindle remembers page 300 as the furthest page read, and if I was to click back on the footnote I would be taken to where the original footnote reference was (page 10) instead of where I stopped reading (page 20).

It's not so bad if the notes are at the end of chapters because I usually read in full chapters, but when they are at the back of the book it's a pain, and makes me avoid using my phone to sneak an extra few pages sometimes.
