I have a post-it on my CA laptop to add a signing subkey to my new key,
I should really do that soon.

Because ed25519 was not in widespread use when I created the key in 2018
I decided to use it only for encryption for some time and add a signing
key later.

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

looks up foo at example.org even if a key with that user id already exists.
It then imports the key and lists it with all existing user ids.  The
-v is there to get information on how foo at example.org was retrieved.
