I don't think that's enabled by default.  It certainly isn't for me,
on an up to date F-10.

I've always setup gpg-agent in my bash configuration.  This works
whether I log in graphically or via the console.  I have a section in
~/.bash_profile that mimics what /etc/profile does to source multiple
filed, and then in ~/.profile.d/gpg-agent.sh, I have:

# start gpg-agent if needed
agent=$(which gpg-agent 2>/dev/null)
if [ -x "$agent" ]; then
    if [ -f $info ] && kill -0 `cut -d: -f 2 $info` 2>/dev/null; then
	export $(cat $info)
	eval $($agent --daemon --write-env-file $info)

    # export gpg tty
    export GPG_TTY=`tty`
unset agent info
