Actually, it's my understanding that the page numbers are not part of the Kindle files but rather pulled from an external database based on ISBN and are relative to the print version of the book.

Yes, they are stored separately from the .azw file. Calibre can create the needed .apnx file for all AZW/MOBI ebooks, but you may want to wait until the weekend - since 0.7.46 will update the method somewhat. See Kindle Page Numbers. Note that Calibre's approach is still based on character counts, only Amazon has the capability of relating ebook pages to actual paper book pages.
