Pacman switch to clear package signatures from the database

I learned from this thread pacman stores package signatures in the pacman database. Is there a pacman switch I can use to clear the signatures from the database so pacman will have to re-download them?

You can force the re-download of the databases by providing -yy.

Note that this should very rarely need to be done.

This smells like an x-y problem -- what is it you are actually trying to do, why do you think you need to clear out signatures?
