It's a valid concern. When you run Make script Stockfish starts downloading something from somewhere. If you don't have internet access your Stockfish build is w/o evaluation.
And if you setup smt like Horde position the NNUE evaluator simply crashes. It shows bad evaluation for example KQkr. HCE should always be in the chess engine as the default evaluator.

Well, these engines are not designed to be useful.
