Where do you get that from, how is it transposed, I have not seen any information 
about this?
Considering all the retrieve positions refer to areas in the "containing page" then 
these markers transposed from a previous page are not attached to areas in the 
containing page.

Are you agreeing then that if it cannot find it on the current page it should look an 
the previous page and so on, or does this transposing do something else.

Yes, one of the many contradictions. I presume you mean where the fo:retrieve-
marker is replaced with the retrieved marker (since it occurs on every page with 
that static content).
