Are you building an automatically generated List of Figures from your
book file, or are you manually building a list of cross-refs to the
Figure titles?

It sounds like the second (because the first method wouldn't involve
any cross-refs) ... and if that's the case, you're creating a sort of
a nested hierarchy starting with the paragraph, then the anchor point,
its anchored frame and finally, at the lowest level, the figure title.
The cross-reference is leading back to the object that contains the
nested reference, the parent paragraph.

You may be able to make it work better if you created a new para tag
called, for instance, Anchor, that contains no text of its own but
does hold the anchor point that is now in the text paragraph...

But I think the only way to really fix it is to switch to an actual
automatically generated list of figures.
