Sorry, I have no clue what is configured, what works and what should
work regarding WKD on your 300baud.de setup.  Can we please stick to one
real example, not something made up about bund.de?

What are droplets?  For which domain did you generate a wildcard
certificate?  What are the DNS settings on that domain?  I could take a
look at what responses are returned from the real domain, but need some
information at least which OpenPGP user ID should be fetchable over WKD
from that domain.  If you're even interested in learning about how to
set up WKD properly.

Kind regards
