Most likely because you have the following chapter set to start on a 
right hand page, and the content of the previous chapter ends on a right 
hand page.  The blank page must be inserted so there will be a left hand 
page between them.

It's also possible that the last page is not in fact blank. If it has 
even an empty pgf mark or end-of-flow mark, it will not be deleted.  Nor 
if it has a custom master page applied will it be deleted.

FrameMaker is famous for doing exactly what it's told ;-)
