Since EPA is part of Emacs proper, you should file a bug.  I know it's
not easy to repeat the bug but it certainly seems annoying.

I set the authinfo file globally, with just auth-sources.  I don't set
it per select method.  You can, but the effect will be different and I
don't know for sure it will work correctly.

When you load EPG/EPA (I forget the exact package demarkation) a handler
is set up for .gpg files *by default* (you can change that).  When you
open or save such a file, it's automatically decoded or encoded by the
EPG/EPA handlers.  All of this is outside Gnus.  So specifying a .gpg
file for auth-sources is no different than a regular file.
