There is a script I made named ExtractText or something similar which 
will scan the current Scribus document, then save to a text file a 
listing of all text and image frames with their contents, in the case of 
images the complete path to the image.
If all you're interested in is the image names, you could delete the 
part that checks for text frames.

The python logic involved is pretty simple and the Scribus commands 
haven't changed since I wrote it, so it should work even with newer
