The Sony numbers the pages from 1, irrespective of what is on the PDF page. Maybe Kindle has the edge over Sony here. (Does it reflow PDFs?). Using a toc with links to your chapters/sections would work in ePub without any need to refer to fixed page numbers, hence my suggestion of trying a conversion. Novels convert quite well from PDF but more complicated books are not so good.
I have encountered the same problem with roman numeral pages before the main text and the only fixes were to convert to ePub or renumber pages from 1 in Acrobat.
