If I understand correctly, you are building your document with manual 
imposition -- your page numbering scheme.
This is addressed on the wiki in various ways, but I would recommend 
creating your Scribus document, without imposition first, then if you 
want to do a pure Scribus imposition, do this in PDF Export, where you 
can specify an order of pages in the PDF output.
Alternatively, as indicated in the wiki, there are external tools to 
modify the PDF after you create it.

Many printers can do imposition for you, apparently yours can't.
