Mmm, maybe not... 

There is only one file located under "/etc/xdg/autostart/gnome-keyring-
ssh.desktop" and no more, I mean, there is no such a ".desktop" file 
under user's profile.

Also, according to official docs¹, disabling from start-up applications 
is one of the ways to go... and curious is that it says nothing about 
this is a "per user" setting.
