Thanks for your answers, Martin and Christoph. The thing is, I tried it
on a small paragraph, and it changed something, but I couldn't really
make out what it really does. Furthermore, I don't know how to use the
three values sensibly as I cannot really make out what their effects are.
From what you told me, it's kinda default for an automatic function, i.
e. in contrary to Horizontal Scaling these values only become active
when Scribus decides so. And does it change the look of the font, narrow
it for instance (as the name suggests), or does it only put the letters
nearer to each other?

Glyph Extension is an advanced typographic tool that allows for subtly modifying the (horizontal) shapes of glyphs without disrupting the overall layout. It requires a bit of experimentation to get to know how lines can be filled optimally, and ideally, Glyph Extension should only be applied after all other optimisation options, especially hyphenation, have been exhausted.
