This was done by design and on purpose. Embedding images inside of page
layout files has been the cause of numerous problems with other page
layout applications. It is not a bug it is a feature. As someone who has
been working with page layout applications for many years, this is
something I was quite adamant to avoid.

For handing out your file to others, we have File > Collect for Output
when then allows you to export the native scribus file plus all images
and fonts into a directory.

I hope that helps to explain why Scribus works the way it does.
