no, not really.

scribus always acts on the current layer.
and it does not care if the layer is hidden or not.

it's questionable if allowing a hidden layer to be active is ncessary (but what happens if you hide all layers?) but it's not really a bug either.

for the future, i'd like to suggest you to first ask your questions in the forum and only if it's clear that there is a bug in scribus (or you have a feature request that is worth to be filled) add the ticket to the bug tracker.

Tested in LinuxMint 19.1; r23174

This is a good and logical behavior:
-- Hide layer enable: Layer not visible and can't be selected.
-- Layer visible enable and layer lock enable: Layer visible but can't be selected.
Really much better.

Works well.
