Is there a way to tell gnus-agent to create only a cache of headers, that is, to not store a local copy of the emails that have been read?

I don't think it does. From info '(gnus)Agent Caveats':

“If I read an article while plugged, do they get entered into the Agent?”

*No*. If you want this behavior, add ‘gnus-agent-fetch-selected-article’ to ‘gnus-select-article-hook’.

That's what the doc says, and I'm not sure what it means exactly, but with the current version of Gnus, and with `gnus-select-article-hook' set to nil (the default), a local copy of the emails is indeed entered into the agent cache, by `gnus-agent-store-article'. The backtrace is

gnus-request-article-this-buffer gnus-article-prepare gnus-summary-display-article gnus-summary-select-article
