guix gc is responsible for removing unneeded packages. From

The garbage collector has a set of known roots: any file under /gnu/store reachable from a root is considered live and cannot be deleted; any other file is considered dead and may be deleted. ... the symlinks under /var/guix/gcroots represent these GC roots.

My own experience is that guix gc reports and removes dead symlinks in this directory. So I
guess just remove the symlinks you listed:

$ guix package --list-profiles

and then call guix gc.
