Ok, so the underlying issue is that you expect the value of the page variable
{$FullName} to always return the name of the page in which that markup was
entered, but that is not how PmWiki is working: the value of {$FullName} returns
the name of the page that is currently being viewed.  

Pm wrote about that confusion is one of the (several) extended threads a week
(or two) ago discussing the proposed {$:var} (and way before that it was
discussed in the content of other page variables, {$Title} or {Description}, I
can't recall).

For an illustration of what is going on here, I setup two test pages on PmWiki:
1. Test/IncludingPage and
2. Test/IncludedPage

1. Including Page contains (:include Test/IncludedPage:)
2. Included Page contains {$FullName}

The returned value of {$FullName} is:
1. "Test.IncludingPage" when viewing Test/IncludingPage and
2. "Test.Included Page" when viewing Test/IncludedPage
