As Fred said, after adding <$chapnum> to the reference page TOC spec
entries, you have to update/generate. But you may also have another
problem regarding this:

You need to set both the chapter numbering and the page numbering.
They're on separate tabs of the Numbering Properties dialog. For chapter
1, set both Chapter # and First Page # to 1, Format Numeric. For
subsequent chapters, yes, you set Chapter to Continue Numbering from
Previous File in Book. But for Page, you still set First Page # to 1,
Format Numeric. 

IOW, if your page numbering uses chapter number prefixes, then it should
start over for each chapter. It would be quite confusing to use a folio
numbering format (chapter-page), but number pages continuously
