I don't believe this is true, since there are built-in png images in
Gtk that provide stock images and require libpng.

Also, it is currently not possible to build gtk without having libpng
(well for the same reason, the embedded png images).

So the issue remains.

Could you give more details, or pointers that explain this ?
Also, "some" is worrisome in your sentence.
