That is right. gpg2 conceptional does not know anything about the
passphrase. This is all up to the gpg-agent. Version 2.1 even removed
all passphrase support from gpg2.

No. However, gpg-agent 2.1 has a feature to loop back the passphrase to
the client (OPTION pinentry-method=loopback). GPG2 does not yet make
use of that.
