Yes, as I understand it that is the purpose, to be able to "preview" the
folds, how they will look after imposition. Placing items across folds is
one feature it can be used for (I'm not sure in which versions that works,
in earlier versions you had to do 2 copies of the item and place half of
it "outside" each page.)

This is of course confusing, since Scribus can not itself do the
impositioning during print, but I think it can be corrected by just
renaming the feature or explain it better in the dialog.
