To clarify this... if you're opening a component file outside the book environment, the file's settings are used, so if you want consistent behavior, the file pagination settings need to match the book's.
The book pagination only applies if the book environment is present. So if you're also treating the files as individual documents, you need to set them up properly. In particular, since you have left and right pages, I'd guess that you're using double-sided pagination... which would force any single page document to grow an empty back page, just because there are ALWAYS an even number of pages.
