On my key, yes, I can choose to add an adk or not of course. But suppose
I want to encrypt to a key that has an adk added, but I only want to
encrypt to that key and not to the added adk? How do I do that?

Probably, but when I answer a mail from home with my own GnuPG I want to
be able to ignore adk's.

You, currently I run gpg 2.2 so it's not of immediate concern. But when
I eventually upgrade I want to be able to ignore adk's.
