When setting up a multiple microplate layout, the group numbering is always 1 based for each plate. This means that when setting up the groups, always start from one on each plate. This makes it easier to set up the microplate layouts (so changes on one plate do not affect other plates) and also you can reference groups locally when using expressions.
When you run a multiple plate assay the group numbers become sequential. (The numbering on the 2nd plate continues on from the first plate, etc.)
