Please use gpg-wks-tool instead; it is much easier and less error prone.

With 2.2.17 use

  gpg --locate-external-key -v foo at example.org

Granted it imports the key but after all that is what you want.  That
new command does not check the local keyring so it can be used to
refresh from a WKD (or whatever has been configured in your AKL)

You may  use

  gpg-wks-client --with-colons --supported DOMAINS

to get the status of the Web Key Service for the requested domains.
See the man page for details.
