You seem to be correct--if your interpretation of "fence" is correct,
then I have to agree with your implementation. However, if "fence" also
implies the same behavior *as if* the fence was the edge of a reference
area, then I would not agree. But I can't find anything that defines the
meaning of fence in any other way than as you have interpreted it--it
doesn't appear to be a completely well-defined notion in the FO spec,
only being defined in the context of explaining the block stacking rules.
