Section 4.2 is even clearer:

4.2. Same-document References

   A URI reference that does not contain a URI is a reference to the
   current document.  In other words, an empty URI reference within a
   document is interpreted as a reference to the start of that document,
   and a reference containing only a fragment identifier is a reference
   to the identified fragment of that document.

This makes is cystal clear, what "current document" means
and that is it independent from any base uri -- at least
in the spirit of this RFC...
