Scribus documents can be saved in the CMYK  color model.

Suppose I buld a document and add an image built with Gimp, which
only works in the RGB color model. I finish the document and
save it as e.g., tiff. 

1. Is the imported image now expressed in CMYK model?

2. At what point does the conversion occur, when the Gimp image
was imported or when the Scribus document was written out? 

3. Are there limitations or preferences with this conversion
process in re. using a tiff vs. a png image to be prepared in
Gimp and imported by Scribus??
