Just separate root, home, and swap. Don't overcomplicate yourself.

Okay, installer is smart enough to know all this things, and I would
go with the default options only,

The installer does not always generate the best proposal for your needs. You have to use your judgement.

but I was trying to know somehow
what exactly was the purpose of having separate partitions and how
does it help....

You need those three. Read the opensuse book for more info.

Root is where the system is installed. Home is needed for your data, separate so that you can reinstall without touching your data.
