GnuPG – provide encryption key for AES rather than deriving it from passphrase

I’d like to encrypt a file with AES256 and provide my own 32-bytes for the encryption, rather than having GPG derive it from the passphrase.

I could not find such option, but I’m thinking about a possible workaround.

Per this message:

https://lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gnupg-devel/2018-June/033795.html

The other use of passphrases is symmetric-only encryption (command -c) but in most use cases the passphrase comes from another application or a database and is not entered manually. In this case I consider it better to use –s2k-mode=0 along with a full entropy passphrase

Is my understanding correct that I could just pass a 256-bit key as the passphrase to GPG and set some options like: –s2k-mode=0 –s2k-count=0 to get as close as possible to the goal of submitting my own key?

Are there any extra options to make the output key as plain as possible? (I guess that some transformation still needs to happen so PGP can ensure that the key is in proper format for AES256) Are there any security implications of using it like this?

Who are you?

I would say that firstly I'm more of a loner, I like to do my stuff as best I can, and I'm quite experimental.

Where are you from?

Yo, I'm Invesvpo, I am just a casual person from Finland.

I can't really say more than the music scene in Finland is full of mainstream genres, my own personal experience is that where I live, there are only a lot of metal and rock-influenced bands.
