Only babl is doing color model, gamma, bit depth etc conversions,
never GEGL. If the data is "R'G'B'A float" babl would take care of
making it linear before doing the real conversion. Though that is
unlikely as GEGL prefers to pass around "RGBA float" or "RaGaBaA
float" data which is linear.,
I do not know the details, but I suspect GIMP is lying about most
buffers being passed to GEGL. It probably is lying and pretending that
sRGB data is linear.. by passing pixel data to GEGL as "RGBA u8"
instead of "R'G'B'A u8" ... to maintain rendering compatibility with
the legacy GIMP core, layer modes etc. which all assume compositing
done in gamma corrected rather than using linear light.
