Dunno what a typical DTP app does, but Scribus uses the resolution set in
fields "Maximum image resolution" and "Resolution for EPS graphics" on the
first tab of the PDF export dialog. That is *independent* of the Screen/Web
Printer setting on the color tab.

As the tooltips say, the Screen/Web vs. Printer vs. Grayscale settings
which colorspace is used in the PDF file. Print shops usually expect CMYK,
"Printer" is the right setting for that. Desktop printers usually expect RGB
but currently Scribus only outputs sRGB and that might look wrong if the
expects another colorspace, e.g. AdobeRGB.
