Are you browsing the site using the full website or one of the apps?
Typically the software will take you to your last un-read post. Or at least the last post that was available the last time you opened the thread.
So for example if you read a thread that has 10 posts in it, then come back a few days later and another 100 posts have been added, it will take you to the 11th post.
That's assuming you are clicking on the little symbol next to the thread title. If you click on the thread title itself, it will take you to the first post in the thread no matter what.
AFAIK, there is no mechanic to take you to the last post in the thread.
