gpg2 --refresh-keys does not talk to dirmngr?

I have set up a local proxy server with a squid/privoxy/TOR chain and
set it up in dirmngr.conf. Now, after deleting the keyserver line from
gpg.conf, I found out that gpg2 seems not to talk to dirmngr when using
gpg2 --refresh keys.

Is there something I have to set up in one of the configs, especially
gpg.conf and gpg-agent.conf?

All the docs tell that dirmngr should be used automatically, if I read
them right.

Thanks vor your Patience.
