Sure. Let's suppose you wanted to fetch Werner's key. You want the key
for wk at gnupg.org Using --with-wkd-hash parameter, we can see that this
would generate nq6t9teux7edsnwdksswydu4o9i5es3f at gnupg.org

Then, the key of Werner lives at

If openpgpkey.gnupg.org didn't exist, then it would use the direct schema, in which the key would be at

Best regards
