What you can do is to use the applygnupgddefaults script to modify all
user's conf files.  However, it is easier to create a profile and apply
its content:

Create this file:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
auto-key-locate local
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

and use 

  gpgconf --apply-profile THATFILE

to update the current user's gpg.conf.  Or use this one liner:

  printf "[gpg]\nno-auto-key-retrieve\nauto-key-locate local\n" \
    | gpgconf --apply-profile



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
