Workaround appears to be 'ssh-add -d' to remove the dynamically added
identities - it then seems to reload from identity file and includes the
key comment.

  gnome-keyring no longer including ssh key comment 3.27.4-2 to

Status in gnome-keyring package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Updated today, it moved from

  2018-03-26 08:11:25 upgrade gnome-keyring:amd64 3.27.4-2ubuntu1


  2018-03-26 08:14:34 status installed gnome-keyring:amd64

  After this, noticed that some local code that uses ssh key comments
  (from 'ssh-add -l' output) for automatic annotations is no longer
  working right.

  Previously (example from 16.04):

  nneul@skyhawk:~ $ ssh-add -l
  2048 SHA256:...... (RSA)

  Now (from current 18):

  nneul@infinity:~ $ ssh-add -l
  2048 SHA256:...... /users/nneul/.ssh/id_rsa (RSA)

  This is a negative change from my perspective as we are making use of that 
comment for automatic annotations (not security sensitive) and things like 
automatically populating git identity when managing a shared application 
development/server accounts.
