(preferably Linux-based, OS) utility to extract images from image-based pdf files ...

Perhaps I am misunderstanding something, but why can't you just do the following:

Open GIMP

Open the .pdf file Gimp will show a PDF-Input window: change the resolution to at least 300ppi select only the pages that contain the images you want (use ctrl-click to select multiple individual pages, or use the Select range text box to input page numbers) Click on Import
Gimp will default to opening each page as a layer.

Select the images you want [probably rectangle-select], and copy/paste as new layer

Do whatever you want with the images.
