Are you sure, Michael? I just tested this. I created a text frame inside
an anchored frame. Then I created a graphics frame, and created a second
text frame inside that. In the Object Properties dialog, neither text
frame has a Flow Tag. 

It may be the case that FM can figure out the object order (dependency,
hierarchy -- whatever you call it) when the text frame is in the
anchored frame -- it's only one nested object removed from the flow,
kind of like a table cell.  Maybe FM only gets confused if there are
additional "layers," like a graphic frame object, or some other
complicating factor. 

In any case, Howard's numbering problem has plagued others as well.
Using a table instead of putting the caption inside the anchored frame
avoids the problem, however it's triggered.
