Those seem to be non-style properties [1] so I'm afraid there might be
no way to alter them from the style…  Maybe using the widget-specific
properties like -GtkWidget-margin-start, but AFAIK that only applies to
widget-specific style properties, not normal properties.

So… sorry, in the end I don't know if it's overridable, maybe ask on the
GTK ML/channel.
