Since a project that’s made of a bunch of sub-repositories that’s later merged is (AFAIK) unusual, I don’t think the writer of gitflow had it in mind.

I’m guessing that each sub-repository independently uses gitflow. When it’s shipping time, the release-merge script grabs from the “master” branch of each sub-repository. Of course, this doesn’t cover multiple libraries that have to work together or what happens when fixing is necessary (probably due to cross-library problems).

And do the test runners work off “develop,” “master,” “release,” or does it shift depending where we are in the release cycle?

It's not entirely clear to me what using gitflow would mean in the context
of a Boost superproject with per-library submodules. Who is "we" who would
be using gitflow, the Boost release managers or the library maintainers?
When Boost release 1.64.0 is started, who is going to create the gitflow
release branch, and from what?
