There are no silly questions! Welcome to the world of DocBook.

> - Then I run FOP and got a PDF file.
> - I did no changes to the rest of the stylesheets. 
> In this PDF file, I can see that prefixes were added to the

I don't think you are doing anything wrong. But the page number prefix
customization was made for a rather old version of DocBook XSL. I guess that
modifications in later versions clash with this customization. It's not much
of an answer, but I haven't looked very deeply into this.
