This is something that needs some documentation where people can find
it. I can't even find all of it.
For 1.4.x series, configuration files were in $HOME/.scribus on Linux.
Now with 1.5.x, they are in $HOME/.config/scribus.
On Linux, you can normally expect things like templates in

On Windows, things seem to be quite similar for 1.4.x and 1.5.x, where
you should find these things in Local Disk(C:)/Program
I don't know where the prefs and rc files are in Windows.

I can't seem to find the Main Scrapbook directory anywhere in Linux
(1.5.x) or Windows (any).
