Graphics Ticks function evaluation on Wolfram Cloud

I have been trying to get something like ResourceFunction["GraphicsInformation"] to work in the cloud – however, it looks like the tick and grid functions are evaluated in some strange place, and not the main kernel: Consider e.g.

Graphics[{},Frame->True,FrameTicks->((range={##};{})&)] 

When displaying this plot on the desktop, the range variable contains the plot range, as expected. In the cloud however, the variable is not set. Does anyone know exactly is going on, and, more importantly, is there a workaround that allows you to get data from the ticks function back into the main kernel?
