gpgcheck=1 does not fail the installation if no key exist.

i’m trying to understand how the gpg is working in suse when enabled in the repo file. (gpgcheck=1)
it seems that no matter what the settings are it will never fail the installation if the key does not exist.
ive tested it by removing all gpgpub keys from rpm and from gpg store that i know of and then install a package from the repo.
i only got a Warning saying that the key does not exist but the installation was ok.
shouldn’t it fail the installation? other wise what is the point of verifying if no actions are taken and only Warning is given…
as far as i tried in redhat the installation will be aborted if the key is not installed.
