Good question.

The numbering properties in the Section books need to be set to use
the existing value in the component files, a value that is set by the
parent book.  But the parent book doesn't require an update action
because the page / figure / table numbers are dynamic in the component
files. The parent book would only require an update to refresh chapter
/ volume numbers if files are added or deleted.
