The commands gpg --export and gpg --export-secret-keys can be used to export keys in a binary format.

Is there any command available to examine these exported binary key files? I need to see if the exported files contain some extra fields or any other incompatibility problems.

gpg --list-packets keyfile.gpg

Even possible as

gpg --export 0x12345678 | gpg --list-packets
gpg --export-secret-keys 0x12345678 | gpg --list-packets
