There is none. versions.cfg was introduced with Plone 3.2 when we fully 
switched to eggs (aside from Zope2 itself). For plone 3.0 and 3.1 
plone.recipe.plone pins everything Plone needs, so there should not be 
any need for you to pin Plone components.

I suspect that is not possible to implement in zc.buildout since 
setuptools does not expose the require information.
