LOL! I will try squinting. To answer several questions:

1.) Nope, SecTitle is not in a separate text flow.
2.) Yep, the TOC in my Framemaker source book generates just as expected 
with the SecTitles in the proper order under Chapter 7.
3.) Yep, I have tried regenerating my book after solving the numbering 
problem and nope, same results - the tags are stuck as the last tags under 
Chapter 6.
4.) Yep, I have tried the suggestion of nested numbering with zero-ing out 
placeholders and nope, still doesn't put the SecTitle bookmarks under 
Chapter 7 in the PDF.

I give!

This has long been a problem with bookmarks generated from FrameMaker 
(since v 5.0 at least). I have long since given up trying to diagnose it, 
and just edit the bookmarks in Acrobat.

I think if you look at it sideways with eyes narrowed, you'd see that it's 
the top level bookmark that is misplaced, not the lower level ones ;-)

I'd also be interested in illumination.
