It's part of the secret key packet. If you run gpg --list-packets with
--debug=2 (or with --debug-all), so that it shows you the actual numeric
data in the key representations, you'll see that skey and skey in
the secret key packet are exactly the same as pkey and pkey shown
when you --export | --list-packets (so GnuPG shows you the public key).
