Go to the TOC spec in the reference pages. I suspect the spec for the
chapter/appendix entries is using <$paranum> instead of <$chapnum>
(especially if the TOC's based on an older template; pre-v.6, there was
no <$chapnum> variable). 

Change <$paranum> to <$chapnum>, save, update the book, and you should
be good. Might want to root out the vestiges of the older numbering
wherever they exist.
