Well, not in unstable/sid:
# dpkg -L dirmngr | grep bin/dirmngr
The change, I notice, in both sid and strech (compared to jessie) is
that the sysv initscript vanished, but gained a systemd user service
/usr/lib/systemd/user/dirmngr.service in sid. I take that as the
dirnmgr daemon should _not_ be run by the root user. Jessie starts it

that it is installed as a dependency by python-apt?
