If the key was fetched via WKD and it is expired it will be refreshed
using WKD too (see: https://dev.gnupg.org/T2917 ).

You can "force" it via:

 gpg --auto-key-locate clear,nodefault,wkd --locate-key user at example.com

The entire thread here talks about this issue and I think you may find

Kind regards,
