Not quite. When importing from a keyserver you use --keyserver-options
and thus this allows to have a different set of options than when
importing using --import (and its corresponding --import-options
option). --keyserver-options recognizes all import options in addition
to keyserver specific options.
The main advantage of self-sigs-only is that it is really fast.
Importing dkg's keys from a file takes 0.2s. Importing without that
option takes 50 seconds. The latter takes a long time until it runs
into the size limit which then triggers the fallback to self-sigs-only.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
