there are no commands in apt-key that use dirmngr, however user passed adv
commands can trigger this.
One option is for apt-key to proactively kill any outstanding daemons in the
temp-keyrings, before exiting.

Status in gnupg2 package in Ubuntu:
I'm using Ubuntu 16.10 with gnupg2 2.1.15-1ubuntu6 and for example if
I'm using apt-key to receive keys I'm noticing that dirmngr is started
and kept open after the task is done. If apt-key is used multiple
times even multiple times dirmngr is started while the old processes
are still open.
