Scribus uses the same settings for exporting PDF, as printing to a
printer. Thus, this probably specific to your printer. 

There are some notes here: http://www.linuxprinting.org/brother-faq.html

Relating to margins and your printer model. They recommend using XPP,
which I have used before with Scribus and it does work very well. I used
this until kprinter came with KDE3, but before Franz added direct
support for CUPS.

Hope that helps,
