Thus use hyperref options "plainpages=false,pdfpagelabels".

The PDF format/AR also know about logical page numbers.

If you are using hyperref, then you use LaTeX. In the \tableofcontents
the links are going to the places of \chapter, \section, ...,
even if option "linktocpage" is set.

For the links in \printindex, generated by \hyperpage, use
the options above. Google for a more detailled explanation.
