When you configure SVI (Switch virtual interfaces) on a L3 switch, the switch will treat each subnet configured on the SVIs as a connected interface. Therefore, it know where each of the connected networks resides. It does not, therefore, need a routing protocol to route between these subnets.
If you have a more complicated network, with multiple routers, a layer 3 switch that does inter-vlan routing will need to use a routing protocol to exchange routes with the routers. But in a simple network, you can get away with just using a switch/router for inter-vlan routing without running any routing protocols.
