I create a new document then insert a large 300 DPI PNG into the document without changing any settings. When I right click on the image, and look at the "Info" option, it reports the DPI as 300 and the size of the image on my page is correct for that resolution. However, when I zoom in on the image, it is pixelated.
There is a limit to resolution display in Scribus which does not reflect 
the actual resolution if printed or made into a PDF.

PNGs are not a good choice for high resolution results.
