For further context for people following this on the mailing list the 
Issuer User ID packet can be added to the signature by using 
`default-key e-mail at example.com` instead of hex fingerprint  in gpg.conf 
(or using the respective command line options). (Some other apps such as 
OpenKeychain also insert this packet).

Thank you both!

Kind regards,
