Thanks for the tip. I had to try a slightly modified query because my site pages often contain 'www' in the URL. I used "site:example.com -inurl:www.example.com"
In this case the counts were 172k with www, 65k without. So I guess the 222k count above was actually counting both, and I should set the preferred domain in GWT to www.example.com...
There's no sign of the root page on the first page of results for either query.
