Because that is the correct directory as told by your Windows version
(by means of CSIDL_APPDATA) or configured by you:

  --homedir DIR

  Set the name of the home directory to DIR. If this option is not used,
  the home directory defaults to '~/.gnupg'.  It is only recognized when
  given on the command line.  It also overrides any home directory
  stated through the environment variable 'GNUPGHOME' or (on W32
  systems) by means of the Registry entry



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
