Thats because it does not effect the package selection, it only doesn't
do downloads.

Read the man page:

              Disables downloading of packages. This is best used
              with  --ignore-missing to force APT to use only the
              .debs it  has  already  downloaded.   Configuration
              Item: APT::Get::No-Download.
