Because GnuPG *does* pass TTY and display to the agent.

It works for me out-of-the-box on Debian stretch/stable, supervised by
systemd... if I SSH before I do any GnuPG stuff, it correctly prompts me
in the (graphical) session that started the agent. So something must be
different in your installation.
I use the GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) in combination with Enigmail.
You can send me encrypted mail if you want some privacy.
