AGC fuse ratings

Something I always wondered about. Most AGC fuses sold online only show amperage rating, not voltage.
I have a bunch of AGC fuses that say "250V" and then have various amperage ratings and a few 32V fuses.

So, question is - is amperage rating of a fuse dependent on voltage? I would guess it must be (3 amps at 250V would carry a lot more power and require thicker wire than 3 amps at 12V).

If that is true - why doesn't anyone post voltage ratings for AGC fuses online? If it is not true - how do they work?
