gpg autodetects keyid and uses it if it's in your keyring.

you can test this behaviour like this
gpg -e -r 'gpg uid' -o test.data.gpg test.data
gpg -d -o test.data.gpg test2.data

check your keyring
gpg --list-keys

remove it from your keyring (--delete-secret-keys) and you should be
unable to restore. You should backup it first (--export-secret-keys +
