You are right. Mathematica botches it by a bad adaptive choice of points.
This is one of many problems with the routines in Graphics`Graphics`. It is
often easier to do it yourself. The following works much better.

Plot[10^x/(1 + (10^x)^2), {x, -3, 3},
 Frame -> True,
 Axes -> False,
 FrameTicks -> {LogScale, Automatic, Automatic, Automatic}];
