What I've seen was that they want cover as a single PDF. They should
send you draft of the cover, based on paper type, page number, binding
type and such, like this:

Create new document with one page of that size and bleeds, add guides
to the exact locations as indicated (object position or guide
coordinates in Scribus can take expressions, so you can put stuff like
5+66+107 there). The (0,0) coordinate is upper left of the content
(without bleed).
I was asked to put fold marks and spine middle axis as well, I had to
put those by hands as short lines in the bleed area.
I've done cover like that a few times and no problem  - e.g. https://wi
