I am using Biblatex-sbl and I am wondering that the page-numbering of the first quotation in some of the fields (such as @review) are permanently fully displayed - this is not the case in the next mentionings of the same literature. My problem: In some cases, these first mentionings are verbally quotations, so that an exact pagination is required (see the first note of the MWE). It is possible to have sth. like:

Julius Wellhausen, Rezension von select, Paris/ Leipzig 1905,von Paul Ban, LM 8,2(1906): 16–18 (here 17).

\documentclass{article}

\begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib}

The option citepages=separate, displays the contents of the pages field on a first citation and adds the postnote field with a special string (thiscite which is "hier" in German). There are more possible values for that option, the biblatex-sbl documentation explains the options and illustrates them with useful examples on pp. 4-5.

There is a small typo in biblatex-sbl with that option (https://github.com/dcpurton/biblatex-sbl/issues/109), so we need a little more code than usual. When the issue is fixed, the \renewbibmacro*{pages} block can be deleted. The issue has already been resolved on GitHub.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}

\usepackage[german=quotes]{csquotes}
\usepackage[style=sbl, citepages=separate]{biblatex}


\renewbibmacro*{pages}{%
  \iffieldundef{pages}
    {\ifbool{bbx@inset}
       {}
       {\printfield{postnote}%
        \global\booltrue{suppresspostnote}}}
    {\printfield{pages}%
     \ifboolexpr{
       test {\iffieldundef{postnote}}
       or
       bool {bbx@inset}
     }
       {}
       {\setunit{\addspace}%
         \printtext[parens]{%
          \iffieldpages{postnote}
            {\bibstring{thiscite}%
             \setunit{\addspace}}
