Not possible. It will create an Msi file along with few other files for installation.

Single MSI package is not possible from SEPM.

from SEPM you can create separate MSI files or a single exe.

and you may need to use some third party utility to achieve your requirement.

It is not possible to create a single .msi package via SEPM.

However, you can create open package which includes the .msi setup.
