You are forgetting that a lot of people use Scribus for professional work, 
where they send the produced PDF to a professional printer who handles the 

When printing on an offset press or similar the printed sheet size in any 
case will ba a lot larger than the folder size, so the imposition must put

which are folded.

What you are saying is only valid for people printing on "office printers" 
and similar.
