However xpdf (evince predecessor in respect to PDF engine) allows to 
define custom bindings in config file, so store link could be 
implemented. It seems, the feature was lost on the way to user-friendly 
interface. Unsure but maybe store link could be configured for browser 
built-in PDF viewers.

I agree that bookmarks as they implemented in browser is something poor. 
Forget external programs in the context of modern browsers (either you 
like it or not). De facto, extensions should communicate with HTTP 
servers, to protect users, access to filesystem is not allowed any more. 
However some API to manipulate bookmarks exists, do not know if it is 
really useful: 
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/API/bookmarks

In principle, any paragraph could be addressed using XPath 
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/XPath/Introduction_to_using_XPath_in_JavaScript 
but it is extremely fragile since link will be likely invalid after web 
site redesign or modification of the text. There is no interface for end 
users but web developers use it for UI tests if there is no more 
reliable option.

There was text search addressing initiative "Scroll to text"
https://github.com/WICG/scroll-to-text-fragment/
The problem that URLs have no room for such extension points and some 
web sites abuse #anchors to determine what content should be shown, so 
addressing of particular element is not possible at all.
