I plan to create photobooks with inkscape since I am more than tired of
these proprietary windows programs printing service providers offer.

Therefore, I want to place pictures of varying sizes and orientations in
a regular way.

I do know these guides.

However, If I add all those guides I'd need for a photobook of 200
pages, I'd end up in creating the grid manually.

Well, creating picture books is related to both, vector graphics and DTP.

Which leaves the question open, why scribus offers a grid if I am not
supposed to use it.
