So, while the functionality exists, it is next to useless. If you

disable the auto-refresh on all the repositories, there is no easy way
to invoke manual refresh on all ( like it is done in smart). If you
want just to see what's installed, and to delete something - it is ok.
But if you want to check and upgrade if newer versions are available,
you have to:
1. Go to Repositories
2. Manually select one by one each repo, and update
3. Close the Repositories module
4. Start the software management module to mark the upgrades and install.

This is sooo inconvenient.

Agreed. but there is a simple way to refresh all the repositories manually.
From the command line, as root, type

zypper refresh

I agree 100% about the repository refresh issue - I had started
another thread with exactly the same problem not so long ago and also
got an advice to use command line update. For me that is ok and it
really solved this issue, but there should also exist some UI way in
Yast as soon it is intended to be so user friendly.
