What you are seeing here is the intended consequence of using \frontmatter, it disables section numbering and switches to roman numbering.

If that is not what you want, please be a bit more specific.

Note that, generally, the material added within the frontmatter is often of a summary nature, often acknowledgements are added here. If there is introductory material that is important for the rest of the document (say a thesis), then that should be added to the mainmatter, and not be placed within the frontmatter
