NFS is completely stateless protocol.
NFSv4 isn't stateless, and in practice though NFSv3 itself may have been stateful, it was usually run alongside NLM.
And I don't see why you couldn't in theory add a little more state to the protocol and make seekdir/telldir. Whether that would actually be a practical solution to anyone's problem, I don't know....
