may not be. "As designed" means that you set the numbering of the component files in the Book, and from your description it sounds as if you're controlling numbering by setting each component file's local settings.
Assuming each of your documents is a discrete file, in the Book window, right click the first document in a "new topic" series. Right-click, select Numbering, and on the Page tab, set it up to start at page 1. Set and save. Then select all the subsequent files in the topic, right-click > numbering > select Continue numbering... Set and save again. Update the book, check the numbering, and if it's working, repeat for your other topic sets.
