Are they pixelated on screen or in the final PDF? On PDF export you can
choose with how much DPI Scribus
resamples your PDF. If that is high enough the problem should not occur.

One thing where Scribus really messes up imported PDFs is if the PDFs
contain bitmap images themselves.
If Scribus then doesnt output at exactly 100% of the original size, the
image gets resampled twice.
