Yes, a lot of other layout applications have such a feature. 

However, I have never needed it because I found a long time ago that
there is a better way to arrange my work so I never have a problem with
missing images. When I start a Scribus project I create a folder for
it, and within that folder another folder labeled "Images." All the
pics for that project go in there. If I re-use an image in another
project I place a copy of the image in the new project's Images folder.
Disk space is cheap these days.
