I don't think you do, it looks at the Geany it is being built for.  I
built G-P against my gtk3 geany and it made gtk3 plugins, and rejected
the gtk2 only ones without any --enable-gtk3 on the plugin configure.

Yes thats something to look out for, as only some plugins are gtk3
compatible it won't replace or delete any old gtk2 ones, but they
should not load.
