It might be possible, but not straightforward.  The protocol is designed to
work over SMTP.  It makes sense that a provider automates the procedure,
although small providers can do it manually.  For users, it is definitely overkill.

See https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-koch-openpgp-webkey-service-07#section-4
It is a work in progress, so don't mind the SRV RRset in bullet #1.

Neither do I.  https://posteo.de/.well-known/openpgpkey/submission-address has
an address of keys at posteo.de.  However, their "policy" entry have:

#Policy for draft-koch-openpgp-webkey-service-04

(Version -04 didn't provide for a submission address among policy flags, but
maybe Enigmail looks for it just there?)
