Yes. It's a great product and getting better, but as you say "much"
(probably most) "of the user base is amateur". And as that user base
usually will want to print small quantities of their work on their home
printer, the absence of colour management for their printers is a very
serious drawback.

I might try a convoluted workaround by exporting from Scribus to pdf and
then loading the pdf into Photoshop and printing from there. It'll be
messy and I'm not keen on the idea, though!
