Those flags are tracked in self-signatures. When changing a flag a new
self-signature is used. This will be uploaded to the keyserver. gpg
uses the flags from the latest self-signature it has.
Note that revocations are also self-signatures (using a different class
and not "flags", though).
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
