If you look the text parts of your ps import in Scribus closer you'll notice 
that those are not in a text frame but are converted to outlines ie. those 
are just vector graphics in Scribus. That's the reason Scribus doesn't need 
the font path and pdf won't show them embedded. Those will print fine only 
drawback is that it's not that easy to edit such texts in Scribus.
