Missing gpg private key passphrase in thunderbird enigmail

I've created a gpg key in enigmail thunderbird and its working fine for sending receiving encrypted emails.

I thought I had put no password on creation.

No password is ever asked of me by thunderbird when starting/decrypting/encrypting emails.

However, when I try to export this particular secret key, it asks me for password before exporting to a file.

I don't know the password any longer if I did ever make one.

Assuming its not a bug and there was a password, is there a way for me to extract from thunderbird password manager, as it must be stored there if thunderbird never asks me for the same?
