See e. g.
(Screenshot made with XFCE and kwin, but it happens with xfwm4, too.
GTK theme = Adwaita-Manjaro. With pure Adwaita, the frame is slightly
thinner and white, but still exists.)

This is probably related to

No it isn't.

Does anyone know how to get rid of this frame in other DEs?

This looks like it tryes to draw a shadow and fails to do so because
you are not using a compositor.

I don't think that's the case.

So file a bug against gtk.
As a workaround enable the compositor provided by your DE.

If no compositor is detected, GTK+ already draws a full border, no
rounded corners, and no shadow.
