Maybe I've misunderstood the question. Here's what I had in mind for you.

Define a new conditional
\newif \iftitlepage

and when you start a section use something like
\def\section#1{%
#1 % section title printed, possible page eject and maybe other stuff
\titlepagetrue}

For producing the correct headline use something like
{\iftitlepage \hfil \global\titlepagefalse % do nothing on a title page
\else
\ifodd\pageno
\else
\fi
\fi}

I'm up to my ears in stuff today, so this is untested. Nonetheless, the
main ideas should work without difficulty if my understanding of the
problem is correct.

Give it a try, and if there are problems feel free to get back to
me either off line or through this listserv.

Cheers,
Michael
