malware? daemons and startup services calling home
I have just installed GPGTools, and I am not sure that a tool
centered on privacy should act like this.
It fills up my system with a handful a daemons and startup services which are calling home (or who knows where) all the time.
This is a typical spamware behaviour and I was not expecting this from GPGTools.

while I would not describe such behavior as malware specific (OS X itself and many other softwares use LaunchAgents) we do understand your concern.
This KB-article provides a list of the background tasks used by GPG Suite: https://gpgtools.tenderapp.com/kb/faq/overview-of-background-tasks
If you want to disable automatic update checks, please open GPGPreferences > Updates and set the update check to "Never".
Let me know if that answers your question,
