I looked this up, and found a paper by N. Venna, and it looks like what
Unicode adopted was things like U+0C78: TELUGU FRACTION DIGIT ZERO FOR
ODD POWERS OF FOUR. But their category is No, not Nd.

I looked this up as well, and these fractions, eg. U+A830: NORTH INDIC
FRACTION ONE QUARTER also have general category No.
Apparently there are no other cases of non-positional notation digits
having general category=Nd.
