You may be able to code the footnote so that certain ebook readers display it as you'd prefer, but there's no guarantee that a later update won't change the way it's displayed.

Other will, I hope, be along to say how things currently work with the various different Kindle devices and apps, since they are not consistent between, say, a Kindle PaperWhite and the Kindle for PC app.
Thanks pdurrant. Ultimately then, it's not a case of being able to code one's requirements if the software itself simply won't do it?

The only software platform that interests me is the Paperwhite 3 and the Fire 8 as it's for my own personal use. If anyone happens to know the restrictions of those formats, that would be very helpful to know.
