depending on your version, the contact editor has a tab called
"Certificates", where one can add/edit/remove PGP and S/MIME
certificates for the contact. How much this is connected to an LDAP
storage I do not know. It depends what attribute your server uses. A
brief look into the LDAP code it uses "userCertificate" attribute for
X.509 certificates. It doesn't try to extract PGP keys from the LDAP
server. You might want to file an enhancement request in GNOME bugzilla
for it. [1]

Unfortunately, these certificates are not used when signing/encrypting.
There's filled [2] for it.
