Precompiled GIMP on macOS does not recognize plugins

I am attempting to install the Resynthesizer plugin for GIMP on macOS 10.11.6.

I installed GIMP 2.8.22 using Homebrew Cask https://github.com/caskroom/homebrew-cask/blob/master/Casks/gimp.rb and downloaded the Resynthesizer plugin version 1.0 from http://registry.gimp.org/node/27986

According to Preferences > Folders, the following directories are used for plug-ins /Users/raxod502/Library/Application Support/GIMP/2.8/plug-ins /Applications/GIMP.app/Contents/Resources/lib/gimp/2.0/plug-ins

The contents of the former are Permissions Size User Date Modified Name .rw-r--r--@ 6.6k raxod502 13 Apr 2011 plugin-heal-selection.py .rw-r--r--@ 3.2k raxod502 13 Apr 2011 plugin-heal-transparency.py .rw-r--r--@ 17k raxod502 13 Apr 2011 plugin-map-style.py .rw-r--r--@ 7.7k raxod502 13 Apr 2011 plugin-render-texture.py .rw-r--r--@ 3.3k raxod502 13 Apr 2011 plugin-resynth-enlarge.py .rw-r--r--@ 3.6k raxod502 15 Apr 2011 plugin-resynth-fill-pattern.py .rw-r--r--@ 3.3k raxod502 13 Apr 2011 plugin-resynth-sharpen.py .rw-r--r--@ 6.0k raxod502 13 Apr 2011 plugin-uncrop.py .rwxr-xr-x@ 62k raxod502 15 Apr 2011 resynthesizer .rwxr-xr-x@ 53k raxod502 15 Apr 2011 resynthesizer-gui

On restarting GIMP, I believe there should be a menu entry Filter > Enhance > Heal selection (among others), but there is no such item. Furthermore, I get no results from Help > Plug-In Browser when searching for either "heal" or "resynthesizer".

Have I misunderstood how to install plugins? Is there some kind of compilation step? Any way I can debug the situation?
