P.S.; Is this your second thread on this? (Might be thinking of a Github issue.)
But, when you see that you have 10 pages left in the chapter, that's incorrect because you really have 11 pages to read. So you think you have to read 10 pages to finish the chapter but it's really 11. That's misleading.

Now, what is wrong with an option to allow page numbers to be done either way? Nothing at all. So I don't see why there is such reluctance to add in such an option. So if you want it as page 1 or page 0, you get what you want.
