packagekit should respond appropriately or zypper/yast don't have the power to
shut it down and shouldn't offer the option.

Typically it delays to shutdown because the current operation should not be stopped, ie, can not be cleanly interrupted. If it has not hung, that is.

For instance, if the tool is downloading repository metadata, and you kill it, zypper will have to download it all again.

Or if it is writing that information to disk.
