<$chapnum> is a document-wide counter; it cannot be incremented within a 
document.
It can be set locally within a document, but it is typically controlled 
through the book numbering settings.

If <$chapnum> is to be used, each chapter must be a separate FrameMaker 
document (or it could be split into multiple documents, where <$chapnum> is 
set not to increment in subsequent chapter parts, through the book numbering).
