If you want to use sendmail as your MTA you have to use Standard

What exactly does that mean?

iiuc, postfix is the normal install. If you want to use sendmail rather
than the postfix provided "sendmail" (Postfix to Sendmail compatibility
interface), you have to use the configuration provided by the sendmail
package (vs postfix package) and hand edit the configuration.

Sendmail that you see on normal openSUSE installations is provided to
allow one to use other packages in a manner quite similar to the full
sendmail package (vs postfix).
