It doesn't have anything to do with the Same as Previous setting. It sounds
like Section 9 got set to "restart page numbering at 1" and then that
carried over as the following sections were added.

With the cursor in the Section 9 header, click the Format Page Number button
on the Header toolbar. In that dialog, select the option button for
"Continue from previous section". Click OK.

Repeat this for Sections 10 through 12.
