Not signing tag when key is in local repo

I’m trying to implement signing the npm generated tags before pushing to my git repo. I have sign-git-tag = true in my .npmrc and a

[user]
signingkey = key

in my .git/config in the git repo, but it doesn’t seem to be signing the tags before committing to github. does the signing key need to be set in the global git config?
