[Scribus] Scribus and CMYK PDF

Hi all,
  before I finally move to Scribus (from Quark) with all our publications,
I need to be sure that CMYK works fine. I tried today with PDF X/3, and color
management enabled, and opted vor EuroscaleCoated v2 as ICC profile, and
it looked fine. ImageMagick (identify -verbose) tells me that the resulting
PDF is CMYK, although I tried with one image in the document that was CMYK,
and a second image that originally was RGB (which I normally wouldn't do).
Colors don't look brilliant on screen (using Acrobat Reader 7.0 for Linux),
but good enough for what we are doing.
  My main question: can I rely on what ImageMagick is telling me (which basically
means does Scribus really convert RGB to CMYK on the fly)? Not that I want
to use RGB images (I can convert them before), but it made me wonder how
reliable the information from ImageMagick is.

So much.
