Don't believe everything you read in the manual - they cover all models and all countries. Also the previous owner may not have known, or chose not to tell you!
Somewhere there will be small print in the manual that says" depending on version & Country".

Run flat tyres and tyre pressure sensors were, and still are, an optional extra on the Scenic in the UK. As is a spare wheel with the Grand Scenic. Somewhere you should have a kit of repair sealant. Only use this as a last resort though as if it is left in the tyre for more than about 24hrs the tyre is ruined!

I know this wont help you at the moment though.
What size are your tyres?
If you feel uncomfortable without a spare , do as others have suggested and try and get one from a breakers.

Run flat tyres are basically normal tyres which have a strip of plastic inside them a bit bigger than the rim, and it protudes about an inch.

they are expensive, but it sounds like the previous owner has had to replace them and found cheaper tyres more favourable.

the spare tyre will just be a skinny spacesaver which you can get from anywhere for about 20, as mentioned above.

always make sure you have a jack, wheelbrace and locking wheelnut key when you go out in case you get a flat.

a wheel brace and jack will cost you about 10 from a scrapyard, the space saver about 15-20. just make sure it is renault stud layout.

the tools are there, just seems so odd to me that the car is so low mileage that it's most likely that these are tyres that it came off the production line with yet it contradicts the manual and clearly has no sensors as the dash didn't flag up that tyre when flat. The other thing is that unless you've got arms like popeye there's no way you could hold the wheel up under the car onto those threads and then tighten up wing nuts are whatever is used - for such a technologically advanced car this all seems a bit primative
