I think you're mixing things up. pref-hash-algos is the algorithms you'll
accept from others.

The page you linked to mentioned this to test if you use SHA-1 as the
self-signature digest algo:

gpg --export-options export-minimal --export <keyid> | gpg --list-packets
|grep -A 2 signature|grep 'digest algo 2,'

(should be one line)

The pref-hash-algos is the next section of the document.
