This is actually expected behavior. See:
>From Werner: "gpg2 can't use [custom passphrase handlers] as [using
gpg-]agent is a hard requirement. The only reason for keeping the
passphrase callback is for symmetric encryption."
Since you're not using symmetric encryption -- you're generating a
certificate -- your callback never gets called.
