Summary 0001163: fscanf omits carriage in the list of white space character directives
Description fscanf lists the white space characters it skips when encountering a blank:

Each directive is composed of one of the following: one or more white-space characters ( <space>, <tab>, <newline>, <vertical-tab>, or <form-feed>);

This list does not include carriage-return. I think this is an omission.

The equivalent text in ISO/IEC 9899:2011 (E) (C9x) is

The format is composed of zero or more directives: one or more white-space
characters,

Desired Action Add carriage-return to the list of white-space characters.

It is not clear to me if this list is locale-dependent -- making
this locale-dependent would allow the meaning of format strings to
be manipulated externally, which conceivably may pose a security risk.
