You are right, I'm meanwhile completely confused.
I retried, and I have to use the %23 notation to open the page
  successfully, that is

I've mislead myself completely,
  and fooled myself when searching for the problem.

At the end, I've not used the blessed org command C-l C-o `org-insert-link'
  to copy the %23 annotated link into the org file.
I've incorrectly used C-y `yank' to simply paste it into the org file.
C-l C-o would have caused a second round of %-hex encoding to transform
  GRM21BR61A226ME51%23 --> GRM21BR61A226ME51%2523
The second round will decode to %23 when `browse-url' is invoked
  and firefox will open the page successfully.

Sorry, please put this bug report deeply into the Trash Can.
