In awk-mode an empty line is not considered a paragraph separator, only
lines containing whitespace and "#" character(s) are. After running the
command "M-x awk-mode" the value of both paragraph-start and
paragraph-separate are set as follows:

    "[ \t]*\\(#+\\)[ \t]*$\\|^\f"

See, at least one # is required. I think better default would be #* so
that empty lines or lines with only whitespace would be paragraph
separators too. I suggest doing the following change:

(pike-mode and "other" have a comment prefix regexp which matches a zero
number of comment prefix characters: \**)

There is another and related bug. It is possible to configure the
comment prefix regexp with the option c-comment-prefix-regexp. But the
problem is that the option only takes effect when awk-mode is turned on.
If user later changes indentation style with the command c-set-style
(bound to C-c .) then it seems that the hard-coded default (#+) takes
preference over user's c-comment-prefix-regexp settings.
