YaST cannot know for sure if there is no local printer connected.
A local connected printer may be switched off (in particular Epson
USB printers cannot be detected when the device is switched off).

On a standard system it should be possible to set up a printer.
In particular when you want to print directly on a network printer
(i.e. when there is no CUPS print server in between) or when
you want to print via SMB share or via iPrint server, you need
to run the printer driver on your local machine.
Perhaps I misunderstand it and you mean

The YaST printer database is not created via SuSEconfig but via
the YaST printer setup tool.
Perhaps it only looks wrong?
Perhaps the YaST printer setup tool only shows some initial stuff
(e.g. its entry in the hardware config screen) and then it creates
its printer database so that it only looks as if it creates its
printer database too late?
