First, i tryed a same test in XPress to see how this point appears.
The "grouped object" does not add borders or colors. The setting
(border width) is empty.

Now in Scribus, i noticed that the group keeps borders and
colors ; these borders and colors are coming from the preferences
scribus (tools > forms).
I think it's a "possible error" to keep this setting with objects grouped
If i ungroup polygones, then it's fine.
