Yes, you missed that I instructed you to immediately define the
marker to be empty after defining the marker to have the ID, as in:

<fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">
    <fo:marker marker-class-name="target">
       <fo:block id="{$id}"/>
    <fo:marker marker-class-name="target"/>

I was assuming you would simply use <fo:retrieve-marker

Then on pages other than the first page, the in-scope "target" marker is empty.

Actually, I'm surprised your approach didn't work because you did
limit the retrieve boundary to only the page. Thus, it shouldn't
have looked on earlier pages to find the marker defined earlier. I
wonder if this is an XEP issue that needs to be explored.

I hope this helps.
