On Debian Wheezy with KDE.

I have a file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/20noperiodic.

APT::Periodic::Update-Package-Lists "0";
APT::Periodic::Download-Upgradeable-Packages "0";
APT::Periodic::AutocleanInterval "0";
APT::Periodic::Unattended-Upgrade "0";

And I can confirm with apt-config dump, that these are set and that apt-get won't automatically update.

In Apper settings fetching updates is still set to hourly by default and I believe it is a bug and APT::Periodic::Update-Package-Lists "0"; should be honored.

PackageKit doesn't read that file, as it's an abstraction layer above apt/yum/etc.
