This flag is a property of the encrypted message and not of the key.

I consider it as pretty useless because most people don't use gpg on the
command line.

No.  The creator of the message asked to display this message and thus
gpg does it.

Ask the sender not to use --for-your-eyes-only  and not to use a
filename "_CONSOLE".
