[Scribus] registration marks in 1.3.4

I am using 1.3.4 in part because of the support for registration marks and other pre-press features (well, also, just because it's there...).  I am generally finding how to accomplish what I want (design of CD packaging), but I haven't figured out how to actually use the registration mark facility.  My printer wants registration marks on the PDF file for the CD itself (not for the booklet or tray card), and they want them 82.5mm from the center of the CD.  They haven't made clear how big the page size of the actual document should be, so I'm just making it a 300mm square for now.  It seems no matter what I enter as the "offset" in the registration field of the PDF export dialog, I get registration marks that hug the edges.  I'm sure I'm misunderstanding something about these things are supposed to work, but I couldn't find any documentation on this feature.  Is this feature working, or should I just create registration marks manually using polygons, line, etc?
