Plot3D Ticks -- How to get the values?

If you try to get the values of ticks for a 2D plot its easy:

AbsoluteOptions[Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, Pi}], Ticks]


{Ticks -> {{}, {}}}

But the same thing for Plot3D always returns automatic instead of

AbsoluteOptions[Plot3D[Sin[x + y], {x, 0, Pi}, {y, 0, Pi}], Ticks]


{Ticks -> Automatic}

Any idea how to overcome this, or any better ideas to extract the tick
values from Plod3D?
