You can run

  gpgconf --list-options gpg

which prints the options and their current values in a format described
in the gpgconf man page.  Frontends like Kleopatra and GPA use this to
provide a GUI page with options.

However, this does only include a subset of all options.  In theory the
man page should list the actual defaults but I am pretty sure that
some(tm) are missing.  If you find such flaws, please let me know and
I'll add them to the docs.
