I think KDE and GNOME appear (but you won't be able to use them iirc
since you don't have them) because LXDE in theory can be used with
other DMs. I never tested this capability in GuixSD and doubt that it
will work since I only cared about LXDE alone when I packaged
this. Just regard it as a sideeffect which should eventually get
fixed. If it bothers you too much, report a bug about it.
If you want to know why this happens: SLIM (or whatever login manager
you use) detects any .desktop file in a certain location. LXDE
provides these .desktop files.
