FM collects paragraphs into the TOC in the order it encounters them in 
the content files, starting with everything in the first flow followed 
by everything in the next flow, if more than one flow exists.

It sounds like your content pages have the chapter title paragraphs in a 
second flow; the solution would be to put them in the first flow.

(Or possibly, the chapter title is in its own text frame that is somehow 
connected to the last frame of the chapter instead of to the frame that 
follows it on the page... this is highly unlikely, though.)
