gpgconf is a part of GnuPG-2.  It is a helper program to edit
configuration files.  Frontends should use gpgconf to change the
configuration.  Gpgconf takes care that the options are syntactically
valid and for certain option changes it sends a HUP to the respective
GnuPG process.

However, gpgconf does not know about all options.  If there are unknown
options in a conf file, gpgconf won't change them and thus you may see
them above the gpgconf markers.

  $ man gpgconf

It is also described in the manual



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
