The autostart files you see there are meaningless for Xfce even
in GNOME compatibility mode, they rely on
X-GNOME-Autostart-Phase=Initialization and a DBus interface in
gnome-session that allows gnome-keyring to set environment
variables for the session.
Starting gnome-keyring in Xfce works differently and does not
make use of those autostart files.
