SQL server 2008 is provided with SBS 2011 premium add-on, it doesn't come with SBS standard.
SBS does have a SQL basic database which is required for Exchange and IIS which you do need. If not using Exchange there is no point in buying SBS Std, go for SBS essentials.

As for not installing features with SBS. There are 3 basic rules.
Always install all components
Always use the wizards
Always select defaults when possible.

In addition SBS 2008/2011 do not give you the option to install or not install some components. Some people have chosen to uninstall some components after set up, but they encounter problems in doing so. In the Event there is a service you do not want running, disable it, do not uninstalling it.
