It's just possible that Murray may be 'adding' the numbering to his TOC by
defining autonumbers in the TOC's para tags, suggested by:

I recently came across this in someone who didn't fully grasp the idea of
constructors in the TOC flow on the reference pages. And it's hard to explain
to them why it's not a good idea, because it works, sort of ;-)
Murray: as other have said, FrameMaker can add numbering to any para for you
automatically, then pick up the text and the number of the para for use in the
TOC. You do the former by setting up the numbering in the paragraph's Numbering
dialog in the Paragraph Constructor, and the latter by correctly defining the
corresponding paragraph tag on the reference page of the generated TOC file
that contains the TOC flow (see Bernard's mail).
