Right ... because the force-page-count= on your first sequence is "auto"
thus section 7.25.6 says "Force [the last page in this page-sequence] to be
an even-page if the initial-page-number of the next page-sequence is odd."

The specification says this, not the processors.

Just add force-page-count="odd" to your first page sequence ... because you
were so kind to include a complete working example, I was able to see this
change works in XEP and Antenna House: the end result has pages 1 and 5
next to each other with no intervening page.
I hope this helps.
