The answer is simple: You cannot "add a secondary UID" to a certificate.
You can "add a UID" only.
The new one does not become a "primary UID" in a technical sense. It is
just shown first because it has the newest self signature.
You have to explicitly mark one as primary:
gpg --edit-key 0x12345678
gpg> uid 2
