Would it not be simpler to just use __attribute__((unused)) on the function declaration

That should work if properly ifdeffed, yes. I didn't do it that way only because nobody else in Gnulib is doing it that way and there are problems with __attribute__((unused)) in older GCCs that I didn't want to do the research on. As I vaguely recall, __attribute__ ((used)) used to mean __attribute__ ((unused)), or was it vice versa?
