For the current page or containing page I take it to mean like so (assuming doc or 
page-sequence boundary):
If we are on the third page of a document and we want to retrieve a "first-starting-
within-page" then it will look on page 3, if it finds the marker then fine. If not 
there is no such area (on the current page) and it should look at page 2. Page 2 is 
now the containing page and it looks for a marker that is "first-starting-within-
page" on page 2. Then page 1...
Admitedly it doesn't actually say that, but I can't interpret the wording otherwise.

Isn't the footnote in an area that is after the main-reference area and hence last.

Ordering stays, regardless of where it is drawn.
