I've been experimenting with this script: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/1344908. Unlike the story splitter script that comes with ID, it breaks the story only at the one place you designate. ID can be set to number endnotes by story, so when you create new stories within your doc each will have its number begin from "1".
The obvious problem here is that the stories are no longer threaded, So if you gain or lose a page you need to make further manual adjustments, which may involve deleting pages or adding pages and rethreading. It's silly that Adobe makes its users go through this effort.
So I suggest getting the document done and only then breaking it into stories to resequence the endnotes. That is not good practice either, but in the end is probably easier in terms of layout, as long as you can deal with endnote numbers that will run well into the 100s.
