Ok, I've found out why it was going wrong. It seems that the first document in the book using chapnum has to have an override setting the chapnum to start at 1 (this document being the third in the book, after the cover and ToC).

One uses <$Chapnum>, the other uses paragraph numbers instead. You can influence the <$Chapnum> numbering with the Format-Document-Numbering dialog, tab 'Chapter' You can influence the paragraph numbering with the Format-Document-Numbering dialog, tab 'Paragraph'. Check the Numbering properties of the ChapTitle and the Heading1 paragraph tags. You should use the same numbering system in all para tags that have a paragraph number.
