I browsed to https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB, a page I had not visited before. I scrolled down to the TOC, opened (expanded) it, and clicked on "History | Version history | USB 3.1", a level-4 section. The entry became underlined, and it changed color from blue to purple, indicating that the link had been visited, but nothing else happened.
I scrolled down to the (closed) History heading and clicked it; it expanded. I scrolled back up to the TOC and clicked on USB 3.1 again, and the screen went to the subsection, which was open.
If the TOC shows a subhead, that section should be accessible. Clicking on it provides enough information for the system to open the containing section(s) if necessary, and the targeted subsection, and then to display the subsection.
I am using a Samsung Verizon Android Galaxy S-3, SCH-I535, OS v4.4.2, with Firefox 37.0.1.
