Hi!

In the rectangular shape structures, how could GC_pi affect wind loads of overall structure?

Doesn't it cancel each other, so that its influence is zero?

You're right, it does--for the summation of forces. But there are additive effects when you're looking at portions of the strucure, such as anchors.
