IMO footnotes, indexes etc. are not what Scribus does. For those text
features use either TeX (free) or InDesign (pricey.) Of course one
could simulate a footnote feature by creating another text box at the
foot of the page etc. but that is like raking leaves with a shovel, a
lot of work for a marginal result.
Scribus is great for book covers, brochures, newsletters etc. It
doesn't have the tools yet to handle book length documents with the
text features mentioned, and may never have.
I started to write an illustrated e-book in Scribus. Before I got past
page 6 the pdf file had ballooned to a size greater than my e-book
host would accept. So I switched to TeX. The pdf file size shrank
BTW the subject of the e-book was how to create book covers
