Yes, you do. gpg can be configured to do this automatically
('keyserver-options auto-key-retrieve' in ~/.gnupg/options, I believe),
but obviously that will slow things down on the occasions where it does
have to go off and get the key.

No, that's just one example of a key, namely the one that's used to sign
releases of the Linux kernel.
