When you create a double-sided document, you are only doing 2 things:
one is that you are displaying pages side by side in Scribus, and the
other is that you create the concept of right and left pages, as you
might have in a book.
So these are really separate pages, and will print this way on a local
printer. If you were giving this to a commercial printer you would want
them to do an imposition of the material, so things end up side-by-side
or on opposite sides of a sheet of paper as needed.
To do what you seem to want you need to create single pages, with the
layout reflecting your desire to fold the paper, so you print this out
first, fold afterward.
There are some wiki instructions about conversion of single pages to
booklet format (for example 2 A4 pages to 1 A5).
