Sure, a page i and a page 1 are both pages "1". But you will get the
message only with plainpages=true (which is not the default):

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[plainpages=true]{hyperref}

\begin{document}
\phantomsection
\frontmatter
abc\label{a}\pageref{a}

\mainmatter
abc\label{b}\pageref{b}
\end{document}
