In the guidelines it's said to use the last page, however in books, at least in Russian books, there is a total pages count written in the publisher's info. But there can be a difference in these two methods. For example, according to the guidelines this book has 334 pages, while publisher wrote that it has 336 pages

Use whatever is on the book, not the total amout of pages but the final page that has a number on it.

It happens in other countries too, for example Dover Thrift Editions often has their page count always listed on the back cover too, and it never matches the last page.

I would go with the last page number, to stay consistent with the other entries in the database. You can always note the publisher's count in the Notes.

Thanks for the answer. Then, I'll rewrite it, but I think it'd be better to get a clarification from the staff

It was discussed and agreed on a long time ago: https://www.bookogs.com/forum/5960-page-count

Mirva is right, we are going by the last page that has a number on it. Discrepancies can be put in notes

See the guidelines for more:

I got it. I asked onlu about the case when the publisher indicated the amount of pages which contradicts last numerated page method
