Is there a reason for gnome-keyring being a dependency of xdg-desktop-portal-gtk?
It doesn't look like it's needed for compiling and unless I'm missing something the portal API doesn't even need a secret service bus access so it should not depend even on org.freedesktop.secrets.
I suggest removing the gnome-keyring dependency and making org.freedesktop.secrets an optional dependency of flatpak.

See Fedora packaging:
This task depends upon

I gave this another look and it seems I was wrong about the portal API, there's a secret portal but the online docs are not updated so I missed it.
Still, xdg-desktop-portal-gtk does not implement the secret portal so it should not be dependent on gnome-keyring.
gnome-keyring is the one implementing the secret portal so xdg-desktop-portal should be the one depending on gnome-keyring directly.

ack, please remove this dependency as this messes up setups using different implementations of the d-bus secret service api (e.g. keepassxc or KWallet)

@smrqdt this won't make a change for your issue because keepassxc does not implement the Secret Portal and xdg-desktop-portal should require a Secret Portal implementation which only gnome-keyring provides, so it would still be pulled in and would probably even auto-started by d-bus when Flatpak is used.
If you want this solved then keepasscx should first implement the Secret Portal and then both gnome-keyring and keepasscx should add xdg-desktop-portal-secret-imp` to their provides array, and according to my suggestion xdg-desktop-portal will add xdg-desktop-portal-secret-impl to its requires array.
