It appears this feature was deprecated / removed as a result of bug fdo#43650 sometime during v4.1-4.2. The tooltip appearing when scrolling with the mousewheel or click-n-drag on the scrollbar. The flickering nature when scrolling with the mousewheel and distracting nature of it appearing at centre-right of each page while scrolling in this manner seems to have been the primary reason for removal. It even had a bounty posted as an incentive for removal. Unfortunately the removal of the code seems to also have removed the display of this feature when using the click-n-drag-on-the-scroll-bar method.

EDIT: The page number display in the status bar updates automatically instead (under v4.3.0.2 and v4.4.0.0alpha+ 2014-07-09) while scrolling via either method. We all just need to train our eye to look elsewhere on the screen.
