Scribus does not (yet) have this feature, since Scribus is designed to
create documents "as is". With Scribus today the best solution for
tasks like thios is to create a PDF and the do post-processing on that

If you google for "pdf poster" you will get several hits, a few of
them mentions that the Adobe Reader print dialog has options for
"tiling" a page into several sheets.

Other options are

I haven't tried any of them, but have earlier tried some other program
(that I couldn't find right now) which allowed to set the size of the
overlapping margins etc. It also included options for both cutting
marks and aligning marks.
