I've not heard of this particular requirement - SQL Server is not installed with EEPC, and is not on machines by default so no, I don't expect it's required on the clients.
I will vote for "NO ".EEPC nothing to do with SQL on client machines.
What password users have to reset or recover? windows or EEPC? Still in both cases Users will not require SQL Service enabled on clients.
For what purposes have you installed SQL on clients?
