Further investigation revealed that the problem is the default configuration only containing ldap:// as configured key server, which makes it impossible to add a hpk server address using the Seahorse configuration GUI.

Inserting a hpk server address using dconf-editor solved that problem.

The solution would be to include a configuration with at least one ldap and one hkp key server configured.
