You can use 'apt-file search' to find the package that a file is in.
They are both in gnome-system-tools itself, so it is pointless to try to
use pinning to try to prevent gnome-system-tools from being installed.
You would have to use negative pinning instead to prevent things it
recommends (or things its dependencies recommend) from being installed,
probably just gnome-control-center (which I can see with apt-rdepends
will drag in quite a lot of gnome stuff!)
