IIUC, when you use the report class, things work fine, but when you use
your my-report class, they don't - is that correct?

AFAICT, the difference between report and my-report is that the report class
produces parts from the top-level headlines, instead of chapters.

Not sure why there is such a big difference in page numbers. How many
top-level headlines do you have? I imagine a part adds a couple of
pages, so about 40 top-level headlines would account for the
difference in page numbers.

Well, yes: the page numbers are going to be off.

So you have just one figure, correct?

The preamble and the first few lines after \begin{document} should be 

Meanwhile, I have a class like your my-report class: no parts (no para/subparas 
either but
I can't see that that would make any difference):

("report-sans-parts" "\\documentclass[11pt]{report}"
  ("\\chapter{%s}" . "\\chapter*{%s}")
  ("\\section{%s}" . "\\section*{%s}")
  ("\\subsection{%s}" . "\\subsection*{%s}")
  ("\\subsubsection{%s}" . "\\subsubsection*{%s}"))

I modified my test file to use that:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
#+LATEX_CLASS: report-sans-parts
#+LATEX: \listoffigures{}
* Foo

Some text.

#+CAPTION: The four principles of person-centred care 
#+ATTR_LaTeX: :width 0.5\textwidth :float t :placement [H]
#+LABEL: fig:four-principles

Some more text.
* Bar
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

It still works fine (see attached PDF).
