No, I don't have that problem with Kobo.
I have a couple of covers and the Amazon one is my fav - magnetic close, turns it on and off with the cover (that is very nice, really, especially on the Fire, where the button is a bit tricky to find).
the progress, though, seems to be a choice of three items - but it won't stay with the one I pick (unless I pick one of the ones tied to minutes, which is completely meaningless to me, especially on a paperwhite, which has no audio .. at least, I assume it is tied to the audiobook length for it's timing). You don't get pages anymore (although you can see them by opening the top menu, which also gets you the progress bar) and it wont' stay with the location - which is what I prefer to see.
