The command --search-keys is keyserver specific and may return a list of
keys.  What you want to use is --locate-keys which takes the
--auto-key-locate list in account.  For testing it is often useful to do

  gpg --auto-key-locate clear,dane,local --locate-key  WHATEVER

clear clears all auto-key-locate settings from gpg.conf and the explicit
mentioning of local makes sure that "dane" is used before looking into
the "local" keyring.
