Someone may correct me on this, but I don't know that it matters about 
these profiles showing up in Scribus or not. Scribus hands off the 
printing task to Windows (or Cups if you're in Linux), so this is an 
external process. The important part for Scribus is to use the 
profile(s) relevant to your camera.
