I have a 167 page document  and somewhere in the middle there are pages that say "Page 99 of 167" then "Page 1 of 3" and then on the next page "Page 2 of 3" and then on the following page "Page 3 of 3"  
then the pagination resumes to the correct sequence within the full 167 page doc "page 103 of 167"

I would like to have ALL pages in this document reflect the actual page count.

Check the document sections. It would appear that one of them is set to use a different sequence of page numbers. If the document is the result of combining other source documents, switch to headers and footers view (by double-clicking in a header or footer and then check the page numbering options. You may be able to resolve it simply by linking the footer to the previous section footer.

In the Home tab ―> Paragraph group, click on the Pilcrow sign (¶) to display the format marks.

When you go to page 99 or 100, you should see section break.......

Place the cursor after the section break in your document and click on the Insert tab ―> Page Number (in the Header & Footer group) ―> Format Page Numbers and a Page Number Format panel opens. Now, select Continue from previous section and click OK.

You may have to repeat this after each occurrence of section break.......
