For PDF/X-3, Scribus uses the ICC profile you specify for printer
output. Normally your printer will supply you with a custom profile for
his machine & media.
In your case that would have to be a grayscale ICC profile I'd guess.
Try to install a generic one (we do *not* recommend this for color PDF/X-3
and offer that PDF to the printer.

Did your printer ask specifically for X-3 compatibility?
