libgstcheck is a helper library intended solely for build-testing. The various gstreamer plugin packages would need it when building - or better: running make check - for example.
No installed application would ever depend on it though. Also, the library does not conform to usual quality norms (like proper symbol prefixing). So it makes a lot of sense to only ship it in the devel package.
