it's up to you. you can break them off of the plug with a screwdriver or similar, or just put the whole thing in the tank and let it grow over it in time.

Ok so it will outgrow the plug into the LR .. But should I glue the plug to the LR so it doesnt move?

You can if you'd like. People do that often if they have livestock like turbo snails that knock things over a bunch

How do you do that? Take the LR out and wait for it to dry?

I use the gel style of crazy glue. put a globe on where it will contact the lr and hold for a few seconds and you're done. If I remember I also have a little margarine container filled with a little tank water that I dip the glued section in so that the initial "skin" stays in the container and not in the tank. But I've done both with neither showing ill effects.
