No, the deprecation warnings are new, and were added with the rewrite to Python.

The `BOOL` and `NONE` keywords have been deprecated for 17 years —
they were deprecated when glib-genmarshal was added to the GLib
repository. Older versions of GTK+ still use those keywords because
they haven't been touched in years, and people cargo-culted their way
out of these things.

The deprecation warnings are there to let people know that
copy-pasting from old projects does not imply that things will never
change. :-)
