When I am creating a docx file for one, I use Word's default A4 (UK ) which also has narrow margins. I have no idea how it does it, but the Convertor somehow turns just the text in to data, the page size you upload is 'meaningless,' and then it works within the ePub just as Paul has said.
BTW. If you mean a PDF e-book, then page size is up to you because PDFs do use actual pages, and they are formatted exactly the same way as a printed book.
Anything outside the main text area, such as text in headers and page numbers in footers, is ignored.
It's always best to not include them in the first place. docx pages for conversion (via Lulu's Wizard) to an ePub are actually very simple. More or less blank, but for what normally goes between the default margins.
Lulu's ePub help files seem a bit mixed up. There's Help on creating for a printed book in there. There's also advice such as ePubs do not support Endnotes and Footnotes, then it tells you how to add them!

Do you meant the Guide (found here) or the individual articles in the ebook category? The Guide should be up to date, but there's a chance content in some of the categories is a bit older. I've been putting off slogging through them all in hopes that we'll install a new convert sooner and I can just rewrite them entirely.
Right now I cannot actually recall exactly what page (I use to have links to them all, but then all the addresses changed!) but it was definitely in the ePub section. It took me quite a while to find the exact info I was after! It looked to me as if it had been created from an edited page to do with printed books, but not all the instructions for a printed book had been removed.
Some Help in all sections do go back many years and don't seem to have kept up with things (and at times Search cannot find things in Help even when you know they exist!) But you are right, there are 100s if not 1000s of pages, and it would take years to read and update them all. Good hunting!
