Should a full-stack web developer be familiar with implementing an SOA?

I recently applied for a full-stack web dev job, and subsequently was passed over because I wasnt familiar with how to implement an SOA ( service oriented architecture ). Well, whenever I get named checked for a particular skill being missing I like to add to the list of things I should probably learn so I don't get hit for it again.

But I'm thinking, isn't this more a job requirement for a backend developer / solutions architect? Does a full stack web developer need to be concerned with how to architect an SOA? Shouldnt he/she just know how to consume one? Seems weird to me. Thoughts?
