The default for openSUSE is to install the services disabled -
installing the package should not enable the service

Even for services that are installed by default?
This particular service has been enabled by default for decades.

I know, but IMHO rpmconfigcheck isn't something that should run as

rpmconfigcheck searches for *.rpmnew and *.rpmorig files and then prints
out the result - and with the graphical boot screen, nobody will see it.
Therefore it's pointless to run it on boot.

A much better option would be to run it after each zypper/libzypp
operation, because that is what actually changes the rpm database and
(possibly) leaves *.rpmnew and *.rpmorig files behind.

Or simply run it manually from time to time whenever you have some time
to cleanup the *.rpmnew and *.rpmorig files.
