Ok, I think I have this figured out.
If you create a document with Hyphenator Suggestions checked, then you
will continue to get the suggestions even if you uncheck Suggestions in
Preferences or Document Setup.

BUT, there is a solution:

Save the document. Close Scribus (with the Suggestions unchecked), then
start Scribus again, and open your document. Now you should see this
suggestion behavior gone.

I think what this means is that the hyphenation suggestions is
fortunately not a feature of the document, but a state that Scribus is
in when it starts.

What this also means is that if Scribus started with Suggestions
unchecked, it won't matter if you check it either in Preferences or
Document Setup, until you stop and restart Scribus again, or start a new
document, and will apply only to that new document.

I suppose it's a bug, although at least one can work with this.
