The advantage is showing the same pagenumber independent from font and font sizes and devices. Provided it is exactly the same file.
With Kobo, RMSDK does not display page numbers as 5-6 in the footer. If the page is 5-6, it will display 5 and the next page will display 6 or 7 depending where 6 ends.

The other thing that causes the appearance of skipping/stuck page numbers on a Kobo is reading KePub. I don't if anyone here knows how Access (which is used to display KePub) handles page numbers.
