The title should say it all, steps to reproduce:

1) Generate a GPG/PGP identity or use an already existing one
2) Add a photo ID:
     gpg --edit-key YOUR_KEY_ID_HERE
3) Export it (in a non-ASCII-armored form) somewhere, e.g.:
     gpg --export YOUR_KEY_ID_HERE > /boot/boot.key
4) Dive into GRUB Console or include step 5. in your GRUB config file
5) Try to trust this key, i.e. run something like this:
     trust (hd0,gpt2)/boot.key
6) Get the list of trusted keys and observe that nothing happened:

The appropriate behavior can be seen after removing the Photo ID from such key, or using another without it.
