Do we have to use one of the GNNs to get the descriptors?

Do we need to use one of the GNNs mentioned in y’all’s literature to obtain descriptor values?

Not at all! Competitors are free to explore whatever model or approach they’d like (with the exception of DFT of course). While inference times won’t be a criteria for winning, it will be a required field people can compare approaches across (pure-ML, ML+semi-empirical descriptors, etc.)
