I have also seen that sort of thing, but can't find an example now. I
did find some Python language documentation that does something similar
except it displays the paragraph symbol permanently.

Here's an attempt at an implementation.

   /* CSS */

   /*
    * Hide class="sectionlink", except when an enclosing heading
    * has the :hover property.
    */
   .sectionlink { display: none; }
   .heading:hover .sectionlink { display: inline; }

   /* HTML */

   <div id="foo" class="container">
      <h1 class="heading">This is a heading
        <a class="sectionlink" href="#foo"
           title="Link to this section">[[paragraph symbol]]</a>
      </h1>
      <p class="content">Text.</p>
   </div>
