They block the key-press-event signal merely by binding to a key.  Geany, in its handling of key-press-event, checks for a key binding that matches, and if found, calls the callback and then prevents the event from going any further (by returning TRUE).  If it didn't, any plugin could receive the same events and assign its own action to the key, and chaos would no doubt be the  result.
