Some distributions switched to a GTK+3 build of Geany before all the 
plugins were ported. Those plugins which weren't ported were left out of 
the distribution packages.

The Debugger plugin (and I believe the Scope plugin) are both now ported 
to GTK+ 3. You will, as you suspected, have to build from source if your 
distro has not added newer versions of the plugin packages.

Some subset of the related bug reports about this:
