You probably refer to different things which "pagination".

If "pagination" means what is being displayed on the screen at a given time, then you are right, it is not fixed. Change the device, screen size, margins, fonts, etc. and the content on the screen changes.

If "pagination" means the correspondence between "page numbers" and the text, then the president may be correct. Depending on the device or software, the reading program may assing (somewhat arbitrary) page numbers to the text, which are fixed and are not related with the screen display. You can then say "go to page #" and get always to the same part of the text.
