I have not this problem (with the same Adobe Garamond fonts)... What 
kind of digits did you use (lining or oldstyle) for your page numbers?

That's normal I presume: in your map standard font is 8r reencoded, 
not expert font.

For ligatures problems, one could try
\pdfmovechars = 1 or \pdfmovechars = 2 in the preamble

Not sure it works, but if yes, may be better to have
move_chars = 1 or movechars = 2 in pdftex.cfg.
