It's not a GDPR requirement as the posts are anonymized.
The post content, if visible, also has to be anonymized, not just the usernames. Otherwise, the post content could still be used to identify someone.

Making the posts invisible would be the only way to ensure this was not possible, but then the personal data, if existing, would still be retained on the servers and still potentially in breach of GDPR.
