But that doesn't have anything to do with the imposition, that is a
problem with the printing process.

It is very easy to test. Just create a document in Scribus with a box
in the middle of the page. I would make the box 10x10 cm. Print it and
measure with a ruler. If it does not come out 10x10 cm it is the fault
of the printing process, not a fault of the PDF.

You should also try printing from different PDF viewers. If the page
comes out right with one PDF viewer but not with another, it is easy
to tell where the fault is.
