If the machines aren't set to meter software usage via label then the service shouldn't be running, at least that is my understanding. That change won't take effect until the next time they check into KACE.
Another way to find machines that are running the service would be to create a custom inventory rule with ShellCommandTextReturn(sc.exe query "Dell KACE Software Meter")
That will return the status of the service and you can create a smart label where that CIR contains RUNNING. Then you can target that label with a script that runs the command the disable to service.
