 From your brief description, I am unsure of what exactly you are looking 
for ... it sounds like you need a background on pages 1, 4, and 10, rather 
than a simple <block>.

Backgrounds can only be images, not text.

Perhaps you can put what you want in static content and then create a page 
sequence where the region named by that static content only appears on 
pages 1, 4, and 10:

   <page-sequence-master master-name="do-1-4-10">
     <single-page-paster-reference master-reference="special"/>
     <repeatable-page-master-reference master-reference="normal"
     <single-page-paster-reference master-reference="special"/>
     <repeatable-page-master-reference master-reference="normal"
     <single-page-paster-reference master-reference="special"/>
     <repeatable-page-master-reference master-reference="normal"/>

But this assumes your body region is made up entirely of that static 
content and not any flow (it is acceptable to include in a page 
sub-sequence a page geometry where none of the regions will accept 
paginated flow).

If I understand your requirement correctly, yes you can.

I hope this helps.
