Attached is a simple file that demonstrates this. As is, it does not leave a blank page. But if you remove the num:nil option from the second line of this file, you do get a blank page.

You (probably) need koma-article class for this. (I didn't install anything. It just worked for me.) You don't need the images.

John is correct, I think, although latex's behavior in leaving an empty

Thanks, Nick, but I have confirmed that adding num:nil eliminates the blank page, and removing that re-introduces the blank page. No other changes to the .org file were made. I was wondering if LaTeX has some predisposition to handle numbered section headings differently from unnumbered ones as far as pagination.

I'll try to make a simple, clean sample that reproduces it, but it's going to take some trial-and-error testing.
