You don't need to have systemd for this. A simple "gpgconf --lauch
gpg-agent" in your login script does the same.

You can do the same in .xesssion or another logout script. It is a bit
more complicated but Unix has all the tools to do that. And you have
full control on how to do that.
I don't want to start another systemd discussion here. Those who like
that windowsiation of our precious Unix software, shall go for it.
