Have you actually read bug #8014, it's described in detail there. Actually you
can just read the code in xfce4-session/xfsm-compat-gnome.c

Yes it is the case, it starts all keyring modules.

The patch cleans that obsolete stuff up and allows GNOME/KDE-only desktop files
to be easily activated on demand. GNOME compatibility then boils down to
initializing GNOME keyring. Again, all described in bug #8014.
