Puppet Run Triggered from Resource Change [closed]

I'm working on my company's servers and am encountering a situation where turning off the puppet service on an agent will trigger a puppet run. Is this normal behavior? Can a changing a resource trigger a puppet run outside a manually triggered puppet run?

Some what related, I've noticed that on some resource, there's a refreshonly. My understanding is that if the resource had been changed from a previous puppet run, it would then trigger running that resource on the next run. Is this correct? Or does refreshonly mean any time a resource has been change (in or outside a puppet run) will trigger a puppet run.
