[Openid-specs-ab] Is it SHOULD or MUST?

In the 2nd paragraph of  End-User Grants Authorization
of Standard, it states:

Note that if the response_type parameter in the Authorization Request
includes the string value token or id_token, all response parameters SHOULD
be added to the fragment component of the redirection URI. Otherwise, the
response parameters are added to the query component of the redirection URI.

Is it SHOULD? Is it not MUST?
SHOULD means that it can be sent otherwise, e.g., as query string.
