No, there are no semantic markers associated with the Han numbers: I was
told that the committee decided against assigning any such marker to the
ideographs. However, the following table may be useful to you:

I am a computational linguist currently working with some Chinese text. Is there anything in the Unicode Database that indicates the semantic category of CJK characters, at a minimum numeric versus non-numeric? The version I examined  seems to indicate that all characters in the ranges U+3400 - U+4DB5 and U+4E00 - U+9FA5 are of category Lo (letter other).
Thanks for any information you can provide.
