The installer takes care to always use gpgconfig to get any paths, and newer releases of gpg have been following the systemd spec and using /run for transient user session storage, like the sockets. And surprisingly, there doesn't appear to be an easy way to override that location. From the gpg-agent manpage:

       --use-standard-socket
       --no-use-standard-socket
       --use-standard-socket-p
              Since GnuPG 2.1 the standard socket is always used.  These options have no more  effect.   The  command
              gpg-agent --use-standard-socket-p will thus always return success.
