Not sure what you are trying to say here. Unless you are suggesting otherwise, the statues are most certainly of Menkaure and Khafre and would be additions to these temples installed, in context of this discussion, long after the original construction. As would the G2 VT alabaster floor with statue niches in relation to the megalithic limestone component if not the granite component as well: HERE.

And while the G1 MT may have been different, it was a temple nonetheless, with as noted before reliefs of Khufu's Sed Festival et al, so there is nothing to prevent the installation of statues there either.
