They do.  Even more: they work as expected in a modern GNU Emacs that is
running on Linux® Console (I’ve just tested it on Debian GNU/Linux
Jessie).

Why the false friend?  If OP is using some terminal multiplexer that’s
exactly what we have to know.  That is the most probable cause,
actually, since: a) I strongly guess, he is using Linux® Console;
b) PgUp / PgDn should work out of a box there.
