GPGMail: Signing emails not displaying user ID with matching email to from address

Previously before upgrading to Sierra when signing an email the displayed address in Apple mail would be the matching User ID from the primary key. So if I sent from [email blocked] it would show signed by [email blocked] – now it will always show signed by [email blocked] which is the first user ID in the key’s user IDs list.

I would have expected it to continue to use the matching user ID for signing.
