The Z:\lib\unattend.txt file installs IIS by default.  Which may sound
stupid, but Z:\scripts\base.bat disables the service by default.  As
long as the service is disabled, IIS just takes up disk space; it does
not consume CPU nor does it represent a security threat.

This makes it easier to configure some systems with IIS and some
without.  It also means we apply the same set of updates without
having to conditionalize everything on IIS.

You can edit Z:\lib\unattend.txt and remove the settings from the
[Components] section.  Or you can create Z:\site\unattend.txt with a
[Components] section to explicitly exclude the IIS components.
