Yes it is relevant, because when that parameter is set,
you should automatically get chapters starting on the
next odd page.  That is the default behavior of
the fo stylesheet when double.sided is set.

In fo/component.xsl, in <xsl:template match="chapter">:

    <fo:page-sequence id="{$id}"
      <xsl:when test="$double.sided != 0">
        <xsl:attribute name="initial-page-number">auto-odd</xsl:attribute>

In other words, if $double.sided is not zero, then
add the attribute initial-page-number="auto-odd".
The 'auto-odd' value should force the starting page
for the page-sequence to the next odd page.
Does your fo output have an initial-page-number="auto-odd"
attribute in the fo:page-sequence elements?

Do you have other customizations that might be interfering
with this behavior?
