I think maybe Preferences is not saving the settings until Scribus closes.
I tried this experiment:

With no document open, I changed the SE font, "saved" the settings.
I opened a doc, made a text frame, and opened SE, where SE showed the
old font. SE found the old setting somewhere. AFAIK, there is no running
SE function until you open it.

So the trick should be to get Preferences to save the setting when you
click Ok, not waiting until Scribus closes.
