are angle brackets around email address allowed for auto-key-locate?

The manual [1] says that GnuPG can automatically retrieve keys for
emails in the "user at" form. Does this exclude emails wrapped
by angle brackets like "<user at>"?

I need to ask as I have an interoperability issue with Gnome Evolution.
Evolution specifies the email with angle brackets when encrypting.
