afaik, this is a fixed feature of PDFs independent of what you do in 
Scribus. Whatever text you make in Scribus, font, size, line spacing, 
etc., is merely transmitted to the PDF as characters, then internal 
fonts are used for your annotation or whatever purpose you may have.

I thought there might be settings in Adobe Reader, but I can't seem to 
find any.
