If each section of the book is a separate .fm file contained in a .book
file (and it should be), and if the autonumber settings of the pgf
formats themselves are correct, then the solution is simple: 

1) In the book window, select all the section files, and then select
Format > Document > Numbering. 

2) In the Numbering Properties dialog, click the Paragraph tab, select
Restart Paragraph Numbering, and click Set. 

3) At the bottom of book window, click the Update/Generate button.

Training is a great idea, but if your boss says there's no budget for
it, maybe they'll spring for a copy of Adobe's "FrameMaker Classroom in
a Book" (Google that title for lots of sources). You can educate
yourself pretty quickly by working through it (and maybe adding an FM
reference book or two to your bookshelf).
