Calibre Content Server: Opening bookmarks on Safari iOS not working

Bug Description

I am using the Calibre Content Server web reader to mainly read cookbooks. I create bookmarks by holding down on text and selecting the part of the text I want to bookmark (like a highlight).
When I now select one bookmark from the bookmark list I see the correct page for a millisecond and then the viewer shows the first page of the chapter the bookmark is in.

I tested this with several books (all epubs) and also novels. The problem is only on Safari on iOS. Safari on macOS works fine. I tried several other iOS Browser like Brave, Chrome and Firefox. They display the same behavior. Probably, because they use the same Safari engine.

I tested it on an iPad Pro 12,9" with iOS 15.6.1 and also an iPhone 12 with iOS 16.0. Same behavior on both.
