That's over-simplifying the issue (well, so was mine, but..) Yes, there
are situations where having a gconf key makes sense, while having a
widget in a preferences panel does not. Those situations are however
basically reduced to cases where that way it's possible to avoid
hardcoding addresses or other variables into the application.

Settings which introduce functionality differences add complexity to the
application whether or not they're exposed in a preferences panel.
Additional complexity == more bug opportunities, especially when you
start considering combinations.
