I also get the pop-ups for git, though, which leads me to think it is not specifically about GPG. Is this a generalized problem, or does it happen that GPG and Magit have made some similar decisions?

I think you'll find these are gpg dialogue boxes, not Emacs ones. See eg

Yes. Newer GPGs think users crave for popups. The component
in GPG responsible for that... uh... embellishment is called
"pinentry", and there are different ones (for Gnome and KDE,
depending on your masochism's flavour). Luckily there's a
pinentry-emacs (I think it's in EPA); for tty users there
seems to be a pinentry-tty.

The situation isn't as dire as it used to be in the first days
of GPG2: it had only GUI pinentries. I just wouldn't have
used that.
