Juraj has written patches to add an applyMasterPage command to scripter.
After applying the patch, you can assign master pages by modifying his example script below.

scribus.newDocument(scribus.PAPER_A4,  (15,15,  20, 20),  scribus.PORTRAIT, 1, scribus.UNIT_POINTS,  scribus.PAGE_2, 1, 8)
def create_mp(name):    scribus.createMasterPage(name)    scribus.editMasterPage(name)    txt=scribus.createText(250, 70, 120,  30)    scribus.setText(name, txt)    scribus.closeMasterPage()    return name
odd  = create_mp('Odd  Master Page')even = create_mp('Even Master Page')
for p in range(8):    page = p+1    name = odd    if page%2 == 0:        name = even    print (name, page)    scribus.applyMasterPage(name, page)
