  pdfpages  has a special option,  pagecommands  I think it's called,
that lets you put stuff on the pages generated by the  \includepdf
The default is to put nothing extra, but you can have the natural
page-numbering and headers & footers; but you *have to* ask for
them, rather than expect them to happen automatically.

Read the documentation.
It is all explained there, if I recall correctly.
