Yes, commercial printers should have no problem with spreads. OTOH n-up 
is not enough to print current Scribus documents since it's also necessary
to collapse the bleed areas between any two pages that end up on the same
spread. Booklet printing in Adobe Reader might handle that correctly but
I don't think there is any easy solution to print Scribus's 3fold and 4fold
page setups.
