How about a simple blacklist?

Just add a new link to screenshots.d.o/package/<package>, with the
text “This package needs no screenshot”.

If I understand correctly, submissions are moderated anyway; when a
no–screenshot–needed request is received, the moderator just needs to
check the request looks valid (ie. the package is a library) and add
the package to the blacklist.
