I was under the impression (and going back to some mail archives 
confirms) that simply deleting the index and then editing a page would 
subsequently cause it to be recreated, and that pageindex is not an 
authoritative source, more used for optimization. So it's possible some 
things you might expect to see there are not yet/ever populated.

And a quote from Pm:
"We don't want to rebuild the entire .pageindex
every time a page is edited or saved -- it takes way too long
(which is why PmWiki does it incrementally over a number of
searches and/or edits)."
