That is expected behavior. GTK2 is end of life and all plugins that still require GTK2 are no longer supported.

amsynth will also no longer be packaged by various GNU/Linux distros.
Debian is about to remove it, and the next version of Ubuntu[Studio] 24.04 comes without any plugins that need GTK2 (amsynth, EQ10Q, calf, invada etc)

(this has to be resolved upstream at amsynth)
