I'm talking if they are used or not in hci_bcm.c.

Just checked and indeed the driver is using _optional() variants.
This means GPIOLIB is optional to the driver.

It will time. Meanwhile, what is the best approach to avoid build break?

Taking into consideration above (hci_bcm.c driver uses _optional()
variants) and no separate Kconfig option for platform code, I would go
with a stub for gpiod_add_lookup_table() when !GPIOLIB.

Another option is to make this stub inside that driver. Btw, as far as I
can see this is the only user which has no explicit dependency to
