I have not been using Scribus for sometime (I am using Zettlr / Markdown 
right now) but I do recollect using Scripter > ScribusGenerator to 
inject variables into various Scribus objects.

It might be one workaround to post process your layouts.




Then view installed script under Script tab in Scribus topbar.

Alternatively I have developed for my own use Python scripts which 
"hack" the XML format *.sla to inject custom variables.
