Plugins also need to be compiled against GTK3. You have to pass 
--enable-gtk3 in the same way.

But not all plugins are compilable under GTK3 yet. Therefore, if you 
have previously installed GTK2 plugins, then some of them will become 
stale if you just install the GTK3 plugins over them, and Geany will 
report incompatibility for the stale ones.
