I did not import any OOo text into this document ever. However, I did
copy and paste text from OOo a great deal.

But having said that, the styles that I find copies of in Scribus are
the Scribus styles. The styles as defined in the OOo text all had
completely different names. And none of those styles appear in Scribus
anywhere. I always just copied and pasted the text from OOo, then
applied the Scribus styles.
