This is correct.
Note that fo:page-number does not "return" the page number
for use elsewhere, there is no such concept in XSLFO. It
isn't some sort of macro language where "fo:page-number" is
replaced by the actual page number either. The fo:page-number
element *renders* the page number.

You can implement a FOP extension element to do what you want.
