Your templates don't match the example input that you posted.

Your input didn't have a field element, but I'll assume that you snipped
 that and it is the top level element a parent of teh value element that

 <xsl:template match="/field">

so when 
 <xsl:template name="examplesec">
is called the current element is the document element, field,

Note that since this is teh document element match="/field" rather than
match="field", this is presumaby generating the document element of teh
result, but it's generating fo:block not fo:root.

<xsl:apply-templates select="examplegp" mode="section"/>
this would select examplegp children of field

but in your input examplegp is a child of value.

I think you are making it harder than you need.

In your main text you want examplegp to vanish, so

<xsl:template match="examplegp"/>

then in the template that's making you main document run, just make a
second pass over the document, processing all the examples.

<xsl:template match="whatever">

... examples section ...
 <xsl:for-each seleect="//examplegp">
  ... a new example ..
  <xsl:apply-templates select="."/>
