I agree with Richard. I use custom master pages and have a para style mapped to my "Final" master page. When I update the book, I include the Apply Master Pages option that resets all the final master pages (not to mention other master pages mapped to other para styles) and it works just fine. It deletes the additional pages after applying the master pages.
