I don't really understand your question, but I'll try to answer what I
think you are asking:
secring is the old format; private-keys-v1.d is the new format. GnuPG
1 doesn't know about the new format; GnuPG 2 only uses the new format,
but the first time it is run it will migrate any existing keys from
the old format to the new format.
