why is object storage more scalable?

"An object storage system works well here since the data is static or fixed. In this example, the contents of the book will not change. The objects (data, metadata, and ID) are stored as “packages” in a flat structure and easily located and retrieved with a single API call."

no. object refers to the way data is grouped as a unit as opposed to being spread out across folders in a file system, or unstructured in a data lake.
