some minimal testing in which I created no styles only produced an 
equivalent of the default style from oowriter.
You might check in oowriter under Format > Styles and Formatting to see 
what styles you have applied. If you haven't applied any, they shouldn't 
end up being created by Scribus.

As Sveinn suggests, if you don't use styles to make bold and italics 
character style changes, you shouldn't get exported styles to Scribus.
