I suspect an error in your formatting engine. I have seen my students get
this when they neglect to add bottom-margin= to their <region-body>, but
you state that you have done so. That margin is there to protect the
<region-after> from being overwritten.

You say "footer", is that a table footer of rows and columns, a page footer
at the bottom of the page, or just additional text in the flow?

That is the required behaviour of the XSL-FO engine.

Here you say "footnote" instead of "footer" ... so I see at least three
possible answers to this:
(1) - if you mean a true footnote, the formatter is supposed to allocate
the space at the bottom of the main reference area on the page where you
have placed the footnote; I've recommended this be used for things like
disclaimers at the bottom of the last page of the flow
(2) - if you mean a table footer, this can be added as the last rows of the
table body, or you can define a table footer and signal that it only be
used at the end of the entire table instead of each page
(3) - if you mean a page footer, you can sequence your page geometries such
that the last page have a <region-after> and you place your content into a
static flow for that region
I'm sorry I cannot tell from your questions which applies to your situation.

I hope this helps.
