Yes. But you can choose the time it normally runs.

Where is that choice made?
Took a brief look, and didn't find much, I got lost in layers of indirection
and gave up in despair! ;-)

If your openSUSE is recent enough, here:


# At which time cron.daily should start. Default is 15 minutes after booting
# the system. Due to the fact that cron script runs only every 15 minutes,
# it will only run on xx:00, xx:15, xx:30, xx:45, not at the accurate time
# you set.

## Type: integer
## Default: 5
# Type: integer (days)
# Default: 5
# Maximum days not running when using a fixed time set in DAILY_TIME.
# 0 to skip this. This is for users who will power off their system.
# There is a fixed max. of 14 days set, if you want to override this
# change MAX_NOT_RUN_FORCE in /usr/lib/cron/run-crons
