GPG_AGENT_INFO sounds like a red herring unrelated to your observations of Pipewire working. seatd and libseat are also unrelated to pipewire working or not. libseat talks to seatd, seatd talks to libseat. seatd does not interact with any other system components whatsoever, and only your display server uses libseat. If you are not having issues with your display server, then you are not having issues with libseat or seatd.
