Thanks for posting on the forum!
The issue is a “known limitation.” Namely, InDesign (incorrectly) reports to the scripting subsystem that a text frame that only contains the continued part of a table and nothing else is an empty text frame.
In your case, this means that the A-Parent master page is therefore applied.
There is no easy way to fix this without slowing Mastermatic down quite a lot. I can suggest a couple of workarounds:
(1) If the tables are never longer than 2 pages, adding any character (such a space) after the table (not inside it) should be enough to fix the issue, and Mastermatic will then be able to identify the frame as non-empty.
(2) Create a special object style for these text frames, and link a master page to these pages by using the object style as the identifier (which can be done in Mastermatic under the “Object Styles” tab, which perhaps you have not needed to use before).
Would either of those ideas help?
