When package.el is used for Emacs Lisp package management, does it get the dependents of package X from reading the define-package in the X-pkg.el file or does it attempt to read the dependencies from the package repo (like GNU Elpa or MELPA) identified in the package-archives list or both?

If it also reads them from the remote package repo, is it possible to prevent package.el from attempting to read it from the package repo and force reading them from the X-pkg.el file?
