Furthermore, just changing something like the position and then copying/pasting will result in a new PDF being created, rather than reusing an existing PDF.

I'm not sure whether this is a Pages or OmniGraffle issue. Is it possible to change this?

EDIT: Upon further experimentation, it seems to be an issue with OmniGraffle's PDF export that's causing exported image PDFs to be off-center, as it has to do with changes in position. I also note that exporting a PDF, importing it back, and exporting it again will make a slightly larger PDF file.
I had similar (not exactly the same) problems. Easily fixed, by copying in OG (not copy as PDF) and pasting in Pages/Numbers. The copy-paste done this way is via MacOS, and it is seamless; the copy-paste via PDF is vulnerable to bugs on both sides (OG and Pages).
