Script are run in the kernel that has no notion of what frontend it is attached to. 
You could totally have a kernel that is attached to a notebook, a qtconsole and zmq-console. It does not make any difference for what is run inside. 
It might even be on a different machine. 

You can still access some configuration with 
which will return a handle to the interactive shell and have access to some options. 

But we might be able to help if you tell us what you want to do with more details.
