Look for example at "pass init".
It explicitly claims to be reencrypting with all subkeys(It even prints
them out).
"Claims" is the keyword here, because it doesn't.
It reencrypts in the normal gpg way(ONLY with the latest encryption subkey).
There is also tests in the test suite that checks that all subkeys are used.
There is just no keys with more than one subkey.
